Start Time: 06:30PM    End Time: 09:00PM

$245 tuition | $225 for MoCCA members

DANNY FINGEROTH will lead a hands-on workshop in writing comics and
graphic novels. This is a four-week class whose aim is to teach
students, in a supportive atmosphere, how to structure and write
comics and graphic novel stories of professional caliber. Combining
lectures, assignments in class and at home, and roundtable critiquing,
the class will cover writing for all kinds of comics, including
autobiographical, historical, “indy” and superheroes. This class
will contain no nudity, but will encourage naked truths and uncovered
emotions in students’ work.

DANNY FINGEROTH was the longtime group editor of Marvel's Spider-Man
line and the writer of comics including Darkhawk and Deadly Foes of
Spider-Man. He has taught comics writing at NYU, The New School, and
Media Bistro. Danny created and edited Write Now magazine, the only
how-to publication dedicated to comics writing and writers. He is the
author of The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels and co-author (with artist
Mike Manley) of How to Create Comics from Script to Print. He’s also
written the books Superman on the Couch and Disguised as Clark Kent.
Danny serves on MoCCA's board of advisors and on the board of
directors of the Institute for Comics Studies.
