Jamming at the Graphic Novel Workshop at the Summer SCBWI

Next month, aspiring graphic novel writers and artists will get together to learn the ins and outs of the craft and the business of graphic novles for kids at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators summer conference in Los Angeles. I'll lead them through exercises in writing a comics script, creating and designing characters, picking angles and shots, and organizing fluid and dramatic page layouts. We're going to work together and have fun! One hour, for each of the four days of the conference, we'll bring our brains and passions together to create graphic novels. The conference schedule lists the full description of the workshop. The assignments for writers and artists, consisting of four exercises and one completed graphic novel page, are also public. I even heard there are a handful of open seats! Interested?
