Event Details

This writing workshop is suitable for ages 16+.

The graphic novel is a fascinating amalgam of a number of other creative forms, and cultivates a unique relationship between creator and audience. Graphic novelist Shane W Smith will be exploring the dynamics of this distinctive art form, with a focus on primarily non-superhero titles, and will provide some useful tips and tricks for anyone thinking about producing a graphic novel of their own.

Participants will receive:

  • A quick overview of some storytelling basics;
  • A clear understanding of the unique demands of visual storytelling; and
  • Practical advice for actually getting a graphic novel made, including
    • collaboration;
    • finances; and
    • time management;

The workshop is all-ages friendly (though some of the recommended reading mentioned in the workshop is for mature audiences only), and is aimed primarily at newcomers to the comics/graphic novel industry. Bring a notebook (or a few sheets of paper) and a pen/pencil.

Shane W. Smith is the creator of eight full-length graphic novels, three of which have been short-listed for national awards, including the fan-favourite zombie-family-dramaUndad. He has a creative writing degree from the University of Canberra, and his oddest achievement is getting a comic published in a refereed academic journal. His latest project involved editing a massive and ambitious anthology of comics and prose entitled All the King’s Men, which was published in late 2016.
