A look into the ways you can set about breaking a story for comics – from that kernel of an idea to a full narrative, from using page layouts, to plotting character arcs.
If you want to make comics, this will get you well on your way to doing it in style.
The workshop will cover skills specific to making comics with hands-on activities and an end goal in mind as led by Ryan K Lindsay – a school teacher, writing teacher, and writing professional with credits from Dark Horse and Vertigo in his back pocket.
