You’ve probably read one, but could you write one? In this introductory seminar, award-winning cartoonist and animation concept designer, Paul Mason, will explore the language of comics and the comic book page. You will learn the fundamentals visual storytelling and considerations involved in comics and visual narratives. Paul will also share methods for writing comics as either a solo cartoonist or as part of a collaboration, as well as tips for catering your writing for the length of the story being told...

A very big thank you to the Queensland Writers Centre for reaching out recently to invite me to the State Library of Queesnland to teach this seminar. I recently was invited to talk briefly on the subject of writing for comics in the March 2021 edition of WQ Magazine for QWC, including scribbling on the cover, so I was very pleased to hear that a seminar was on the cards. It will be a 3 hour seminar designed to introduce writers and interested folks to comics, visual storytelling and the craft of writing for the comic book medium, based on my teaching of Visual Story, and Comics at Griffith University.

Early Bird Prices available for In-Person, Live Streaming and recording for Saturday 31 July 2021.
