How is the best way for a writer to get someone to read their stuff? An artist can just show up at a comicon to show their stuff around but a writer...

The best way i've found is to actually have something in print that the editor can read later. Even if it's just something you publish yourself in black and white, I've found editors are more receptive to reading a printed comic from a new writer. You're never going to get them to read it at a convention, sorry. It's not malicious it's just that there's a lot going on at conventions.
With writing it's about cultivating a relationship with an editor and that takes time.

Ask me anything
