Beth Barnett makes comics about heroes, health and history in Cambridge, MA. Her previous work includes the full-length graphic novel, Dreamers of the Day, a self-published book following her research trip to Oxford University to consult TE Lawrence (of Arabia)’s archives. Dreamers of the Day was awarded one of Multiversity Comics Best Graphic Novels of 2019, and earned year-end highlights on Graphic Policy and Driving Creators Network. Additionally, Dreamers of the Day is now part of the curriculum in the University of Freiburg (Germany)’s history department. Additionally, Beth’s work has appeared in the comics anthologies Dead Beats (A Wave Blue World 2019) and the PRISM nominated Being True (Boston Comics Roundtable 2018).

She has considerable experience speaking about her work. In 2019 she was a panelist at the Small Press Expo and Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, speaking about creating graphic biographies. In 2020, she spoke on panels for the New England Graphic Medicine conference, the American Library Association, and Belmont Public Library, the latter two about making comics during the COVID-19 crisis.

She can be found on Twitter and Instagram as @TheBethBarnett. Her favorite dinosaur is the compsognathus.
