Yesterday, I hosted a comics scriptwriting workshop at Eastfield College as part of their Literary and Fine Arts Festival. Eastfield was a gracious host–providing a great facility and sandwiches. The students were wonderful. (Thank you Iris for inviting me.)
Unfortunately, I didn’t do a good job keeping track of my time. I went over, which meant we had to skip the writing exercises (the thing that made the workshop a workshop). I could’ve easily gone another hour. Fortunately, it makes the audio more tolerable, because there isn’t an extended period of nothingness while everyone is busy writing.
Let me know what you think. There’s some useful information here. I’d recommend listening to the lecture and following along with the power point (saved as a pdf). I could revise and improve upon some areas of the workshop, and it would be exciting to adapt this into a longer seminar or series. But right now, I’m sharing it with you. Enjoy. Post in the comments section if you have any questions or feedback.
