Thumbnailing for Graphic Novels

Turn your story into a graphic novel

In this two-hour Write Club for Grown Ups workshop, participants will learn how to turn your stories into a comic or graphic novel one scene at a time.

Practice breaking down a scene from a story you’ve written into scripted parts, and then use those notes to make a visual thumbnail of the scene. Learn how to frame an image to show what your characters are feeling, as well as how to get inspiration from graphic novels for young adults. Learn about pacing for tone, dramatic angles, and considerations specific to comix media. Practice drawing skills and storytelling through the art of comix.

Drawing experience is not necessary, and you’ll get basic drawing tips to start from whatever skill level you have.
