As graphic novels move further into the mainstream of popular culture, they are attracting more interest than ever before.
Addressing this recent graphic novel resurgence into the public consciousness, the symposium will provide an opportunity where those interested in finding out more about graphic novels can share the experience; and would-be creators can learn what it takes to be a graphic novelist.
There will be three different tracks, scheduled between 9am to 5pm, the first track will feature seminars on topics such as “Who Reads Graphic Novels” and “How to Get Published”. The second track will consist of workshops on subjects such as “Story Telling” and “Where to Start with Art” and the final track will specifically accommodate librarians with panels on acquisition, shelving, censorship, manga, and graphic novels for adults and teens.
Cost will be $125, this will include lunch and the gala reception with the keynote speaker. Full information including registration details will be posted shortly.
