Tell us more about yourself
I co-founded Graphic Scotland. I am also a writer, and am always looking for artists to collaborate with. I recently entered the Jonathan Cape/Observer Prize for graphic fiction with artist Morag Hannah, and am working on my first children's comic, Brunhilda and the Dragon, with illustrator Alex Cass.

More about Ariadne
Ariadne is an Australian writer who lived in Fiji, Teeside and the United Arab Emirates before settling in Scotland in 2000.

She co-founded Graphic Scotland after completing her Masters in Creative Writing with distinction at Edinburgh Napier University. She specialised in graphic fiction and was mentored by David Bishop.

She is currently collaborating with illustrators in the development of two separate graphic shorts. She's also working on her first full length graphic novel.

She hosts spoken word evenings in Edinburgh with Illicit Ink and is involved in running Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Edinburgh.
