    Words Aren’t Pictures, Yet: Adapting Prose into Graphic Novels

    One of the fastest growing sections of any book store are the shelves given over to that impertinent artform: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL. As a medium it challenges the maker, as a form it disarms the reader. Can a writer used to the challenges of the novel, the short story, the film script, the play—use what they know to make words work in juxtaposition with pictures? How do you find a voice that speaks through pictures? How do you craft a collaboration with an artist that makes something better than the sum of its parts? Join award winning graphic novelist GMB Chomichuk in a two hour seminar about what words to leave in and what words to leave out in the creation of your own comics and graphic novels.
