Creative Writing: Write and Draw Your Graphic Novel
In this eight week course, students will write on their own graphic novel or comic. We'll discuss elements of writing like plot and characterization, as well as art elements like drawing panels, transitions, and developing style! Excellent for artists looking to work on their creative writing, and creative writers who want to expand their artistic skills and try out the graphic novel world.

For fans of graphic novels of all types-- from Raina Telgemeier's SMILE, to Tui Sutherland's WINGS OF FIRE series, to ND Stevenson's NIMONA! In this class, author Tiffany Schmidt will discuss the elements of a graphic novel-- from panels to gutters to the script-- and guide each student through the process of creating their own graphic story. Week 1: We'll discuss the parts of graphic novels (panels, gutters, etc) as well as how the script relates to the pictures. We'll also discuss...
Each week homework (as explained in the description) will be assigned. Each student's time here will vary, but students can expect to spend at least one hour on each week's homework.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class! -For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them. Please be sure to prepare your student for this requirement before class begins! -Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!). -Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book. -The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
