Writing for Comics

Sep 20 - Dec 17
3.50 CEUs

Mark Sable Writer for comics, film, live action television, animation, and theater

From The Walking Dead to The Avengers, comics have gone from a niche medium to one that is an indelible part of popular culture. Yet, very few people understand the unique narrative possibilities of comics, the role of a comics writer (we don't just write word balloons) and how to write sequential narratives. This course will be an in-depth, practical exploration of the art of creating and the business of selling comics, with students learning from the instructor's long professional experience as well as that of highly accomplished guest lecturers. This is a basic-level course and is open to all students. It will focus on learning by doing, with students writing full comics scripts.
NOTE: Open to all levels. No art or writing background is required. This course is fully online and asynchronous. Without a set meeting time each week, students can learn and participate on their own schedule. However, there are assignments that will be due by specific dates.
