Panels and Pictures: Comic and Graphic Novel Writing by guest Dave Ebersole
What is the story you’ve always wanted to read but never have? Comic books and graphic novels tell stories through pictures organized in sequential order. They can tell big, world-bending stories of characters with immense powers. They can tell more intimate stories of personal issues and family drama. You can tell any kind of story through this medium, but where do you start? During this workshop you’ll learn about the endless possibilities and genres comics contain, the early steps in creating your book, and tips on how to work and collaborate with artists. You’ll also learn ways to get your comic out there, and you’ll begin to create a concept to make your very own book.
No experience necessary; this workshop seeks to help you find the comic you want to tell.
