Flenniken Teaches Graphic Novel Class

Scripting the Graphic Novel for Writers and Artists

The graphic novel has come into its own as a Pulitzer Prize-winning literary form and the inspiration for many feature films. Whether your story is pure fantasy or gritty nonfiction, as the auteur of your graphic novel you have complete control of your personal vision. Bring your idea, life story, intriguing scenario or blank page to this class and find out how to build your graphic novel from the ground up. Explore common sense techniques that will help you develop themes, structure your story and create legendary characters. Your finished product will engage the reader and easily translate to the silver screen. If you can draw a stick figure, you're ready for this class! Instructor will e-mail students before class with a list of materials to bring.
