Jennifer de Guzman’s latest column is up over at Comic World News. In it, she shares her notes from SLG’s recent writer’s workshop in San Jose:
The comic book writing workshop I hosted on April 14th with Landry Walker (writer and co-creator of The Super-Scary Monster Show and Kid Gravity and co-writer of Tron) and Alternative Press Expo (APE) that took place this past weekend made it clear that, no matter what the state of the industry, no matter how jaded those of us who work in it get, there still are people who want to make comics. We’re hoping to encourage that at SLG Publishing, and the workshop I hosted was the first push of what we hope to be a greater effort in months to come.
Because of the workshop, APE, and a local comic book expo for teens I’m attending tomorrow, April has been a packed month for me, so I hope nobody will mind if I use my notes for the “lecture” portion of the workshop as this month’s column. I used Graphic Storytelling by Will Eisner and Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud as my texts, and I reference them in the notes.
If you’re interested in the next workshop, contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
