Graphic novels are an exciting section of children’s literature. And it’s the only segment where writers and illustrators can pair up to create a project before going to a publisher. Read more about the format in this Q&A.
Our hands-on Graphic Novel Workshop will focus on the craft of developing the story, characters and blending of words and pictures that have attracted so many fans to this genre. Speakers are New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith, award-winning author/illustrator Dave Roman and Senior Editor Calista Brill of First Second Books. Get all the details about the speakers and the Workshop schedule here.
The first 35 people who register will receive a free copy of Cynthia Leitich Smith’s graphic novels Tantalize or Eternal at the conference and will be notified via email after registration.
