Are you fascinated by the interplay between words and images? Whether you want to write comic books, illustrated texts or just play with the possibilities of combining text and images, this "Writing Graphic Novels" workshop will help you de-mystify a few things about "comics" and "graphic novels" and will also connect with people who are interested in the medium but think they can't get involved because they only feel capable of doing one task –either writing or illustrating.
This introductory course will cover elements of narrative specific to the form, relationships with artists and collaborative industry styles, as well as everything you need to know to start out in graphic novels. You will also be provided with resources including an introductory glossary and explanation of the industry as well as examples of how to structure writing for the form and a reading list for your further research and development. You will also learn about the production and distribution processes and the ways they differ from mainstream novels.
Presenter: Chewie Chan is an experienced storyboard and comic book artist who has worked on comic books such as Iron Man and for the films Happy Feetand Superman Returns.
