Diana Botsford and Chun Lee: Creating the Comic Book Series
(Saturday, Sept. 27th, 2:00-4:00pm)
Join Chun Lee and Diana Botsford, authors of the new FE comic book series, The Fracture
, in this 2-hour workshop on creating and writing a comic book series for publication. Learn how to write a proposal for a series, how to write a 'pilot' issue, what it takes to collaborate with others (illustrators, inkers, colorists, etc) and most importantly, how to tell a story visually.
Participants will create opening scenes and sequences, and join in writing exercises to get the collaborative juices going. Bring your laptop (if you have one) or pen and paper.
As of June 5th, twenty-two seats remain in this workshop. The cost is $15, plus convention registration. Register today
to secure your spot in the workshop.
