Manga School to open at MCM Expo in October? Register interest now.

So you could spend 3 days having fun, meeting friends and not thinking about a certain daily activity that consumes a large proportion of our young lives.  School.  Everybody knows the unwritten law, we don’t talk about *shhh* school *shhh* at the Expo, but if Letraset go ahead with their idea to open a Manga School at the MCM Expo in October then it may be time to put on your school uniform cosplay and hit the books!

In their recent post-Expo post over at the Official Letraset Blog, a poll has just been launched to gather opinions and register potential interest in running a Manga School.  Ideally they would like to run 4 to 5 workshops each day of the Expo weekend with classes lasting 1 hour each.  Drawing instruction would be provided by some of the industry’s top comic and manga artists with a small fee to cover tuition.

Although Manga School has not yet been confirmed, Letraset is now giving Expo attendees the chance to voice their opinion regarding topics to be covered, cost and other general ideas by heading over to the Manga School Poll on their blog.

In association with leading the UK Manga Publisher, Sweatdrop Studios, Letraset runs the Art Competition at every MCM Expo which will return again in October 2011.  The winners of the recent competition from the MCM Expo in May have been announced in an earlier post here on MCM Buzz.

So if you’ve always wanted to draw Manga but never known where to start, then showing up at the MCM Expo with a few Letraset markers in October may well be your first step towards your debut as a UK mangaka.  Just remember, doodling and scribbling all over your homework…is allowed!

Manga School is dependent on sufficient interest from Expo attendees so to register your interest just comment on this post over at the Official Letraset Blog
