Graphic Novel Basics: How to Write for the Drawn Story

Tim and I had the privilege of teaching a new workshop at Grub Street in Boston this weekend entitled “Graphic Novel Basics: How to Write for the Drawn Story.” After years of professional art experience, 6 years in college, and lots of teaching, it was so fun and interesting to approach a course in language of comics for writers, because the challenge of writing pictures for a visual narrative is a completely different way to structure and think about story!

We are already looking forward to the next time around; a quick shout out to our students (thank you!) for being so terrific! A month long drawing project begins here tomorrow. Back at you soon, and back to the drawing board for now…
