I heard the other day about a event coming up that sounds really interesting -- Splat! A Graphic Novel Symposium will be held Saturday, March 15 in New York.
Apparently this is a day-long seminar for graphic novel afficionados and aspiring graphic novelists. The workshops sound great -- from basic storytelling, to more intensive writing topics like Comic Deconstruction and Place in the Graphic Novel. Guests include a whole bunch of indie graphic novelists, Scott McCloud, Brian Wood, and Marvel Submissions Editor CB Cebulski.
I'm thrilled to hear about this workshop -- just another way that graphic novels and trade paperbacks are starting to move in to the mainstream. If you're in the New York area, I strongly encourage you to support this event.
BUT WAIT ...
