Megan E. Byrd

I LIKE COMICS AND STUFF

With a varied background in photography, independent comic book publishing, and community based event organization, I look forward to combining my skills and passions to become an indispensable member of an organization equally dedicated to these endeavors. As Editor-in-Chief of Ladies' Night Anthology, I work closely with a dedicated team of editors to publish an annual comic book collection featuring emerging creators. This role requires organizing many collaborators, formatting the final product for print, and maintaining a clear vision for the publication from inception to publication. My most recent position as Lead Studio Photographer required managing a team in a fast-paced environment by meeting production goals and maintaining a high quality of work.
