"Want to write a graphic novel? Create a world where super heroes and villains reign. As we help you focus on character development and storytelling you will create five pages of a graphic novel or comic book. You’ll meet other students who share your interests and help each other improve your technique. Best of all, professional writers and illustrators will join us throughout the week to give their insights and expertise.The coolest part of this camp is the FOUR guest lecturers. We've book four of the finest local graphic novelists, illustrators, and writers.
Tuition includes: five days of instruction, writing and classroom materials, guest author visits, guest author book, gallery show at end of camp, T–shirt, and snacks."
Jared Greenleaf will be teaching Creative Research: Things to consider when world-building a story, sci-fi & fantasy story types, and writing formulas and tricks in space travel, Magic, and more.
Jake Parker is teaching panel to panel storytelling and page layout & composition, along with a brief history of comics.
Jake Wyatt's lesson includes integration of text and image in comics, and the challenges and opportunities inherent to planning a visual narrative through text as it applies to writing for comics and the screen.
Come and check it out! It will be well worth it!
