MCM Show Guide: If you like…Books!

Whether you're looking for a new book to read or want to meet your favourite author, MCM Comic Con is the place to be. We've created a guide for you to check out, so that you can get the most out of your visit!

What’s on at Writers Block?

Your one-stop shop for everything brilliantly bookish, included in your ticket. In addition to a robust programme of literary panels and author signings, we’ll have a curated selection of awesome author tables across the 3-day weekend!

Literary Panels

Get unique insights in the minds of your favourite authors at MCM London! Whether you're a fan of Young Adult (YA), Science Fiction & Fantasy (SFF), horror, or any other genre, we have panels all weekend from the creators of worlds. Our Writers Block author guests will take to the stage to share their inspirations, offer valuable writing tips, and share their passion for the world of literature.

These panels are free for every ticket holder, whether you’re an aspiring author looking for tips on creative writing, or just looking to get the inside scoop on how stories you love came to life.

Author Signings

Have you ever wished to meet the brilliant minds behind your favourite literary worlds and stories? At Writers Block, this dream becomes a reality! 

All you need to do is bring your book or purchase one at Forbidden Planet's Booth on the show floor, and you'll have the chance to meet the authors themselves. This is your opportunity to have your book signed, engage in meaningful conversations, and perhaps even take a photo with your literary idols (depending on the guest), included in your ticket!

Author Tables

Are you an author eager to build your brand, connect with new fans, and showcase your work? Or are you a book enthusiast on the hunt for your next favourite indie author? Writers Block has created an area just for you. 

Author Tables offer writers of prose books and novels a platform to interact with their audience, share their stories, and expand their literary horizons. For readers, it's a fantastic opportunity to discover hidden gems and support independent authors.

Whether you're a seasoned reader, an aspiring writer, or an author looking to connect with your audience, Writers Block has something for everyone!
