Meet Us at Bologna!

ITSme Learning is excited to attend Bologna Book Fair April 8-11, 2024! Our CEO Edward Burns, Marketing and Learning Director Emily Coggins, and Talent Source Manager Vicky Patoulioti will all be in attendance, reviewing portfolios, sharing industry knowledge, special offers, and more to help you be a pro, doing what you enjoy.

They will be there with the ITSme Society agencies, including agents from Illo Agency, Advocate Art, Astound US Inc., Caroline Wakeman Literary Agency, and Collaborate Agency.

ITSme Learning will have its own stand where we will host portfolio reviews, talks, and after show parties. We will also have special offers for anyone who visits our booth. We are thrilled to be able to attend and get to meet you in person.

We can’t wait to review your work and help you on your creative journey. If you would like to join the waitlist to pre-schedule a portfolio review, please email us at learning@itsmegroup.com. We will be scheduling the reviews as we get closer to the dates of the fair.

Any artist who has already enrolled in our Character Study Intensive or Graphic Novel Bootcamp courses will be prioritized for a pre-scheduled portfolio review!

Our full schedule of events and review times will be sent via our newsletter to subscribers only, so make sure you are subscribed to the newsletter here.

See you at the fair!
