The Loft is hosting a Graphic Novel & Comic Book Writing and Illustrating Conference next month on Saturday, June 19:
Keynote Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese, the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award, will lead the way through this one-day conference.
Registration opens Saturday, May 22nd, online at: www.hclib.org
You may also register by phone on or after May 22nd at 952-847-8800.
Sessions will include:
- Craft talks on illustration and writing
- Breaking into graphic novels and comic books
- Zines, self-publication and promotion
When you register (it’s FREE through some deal with the library), you get to specify which sessions you’re interested in. Aside from the keynote, of course, I’m particularly excited for “Writing for Comic Books & Graphic Novels with Zander Cannon”. I’m signed up, anyone else want to join me? (Thanks to my co-worker Michael for the heads up on this!)
