21W.758 Genre Fiction Workshop: The Sweet Art of Comic Book Writing

In our class we will read a wide range of comics, corporate and independent, print and web, but our primary text will be your writing. Participants will be responsible for creating short scripts and full-length comic book narratives across a wide range of genres. Drawing skills are unnecessary, though if you wish to illustrate or storyboard your scripts, all the better — but scripts will be our focus. In both our critical and creative work special attention will be paid to questions of gender, race, ethnicity, and sexuality.
