SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Start Time: 06:00PM End Time: 09:30PM
This hands-on, intensive course assumes students already have some mastery of the fundamentals of comics and graphic novel scriptwriting. Over the course of one full day and three nights, students will write a complete comics script.
In the first session, we hit the ground running and work our way through a week in which story ideas/scripts are pitched, thoughtfully critiqued by the instructor and the other students, and revised. These focused workshop sessions are interspersed with relevant lectures and practical answers to students' questions.
Students must have completed (although not necessarily published) at least one comics script.
(1) Please come to the first class with springboards (one-paragraph ideas) for three stories. Each student chooses one as his or her class project.
(2) Instructor will provide a printer and printing paper, but students must bring their own laptops or other writing devices and e-mail capacity or thumb drive to send work to our computer.
