LA BinderCon Workshop: Can You See It? Using Comics and Sketching to Develop your Writing

Wondering what programming we have in store for you at LA BinderCon? We’ll be announcing all week – stay tuned for more (and be sure to buy your tickets while Early Bird level is still available!).

Can You See It? Using Comics and Sketching to Develop your Writing
(Betsy Streeter)

What happens when you explore your writing in a new format? Do you learn things you didn’t know about your characters? Do your ideas take a different form? What if your piece was a comic? An infographic? A single panel?

In this workshop, learn how incorporating principles of comics, cartooning, and storyboarding can open up your perspective. Learn the basics of laying out a comic, and try out your own ideas or challenge Betsy to visualize them for you. Give yourself some time and space to be silly or even confused.

The goal of this workshop is for every participant to leave with a new view of her work, and inspiration to think beyond words on a page or pixels on a screen.
