Bringing our diverse local writing communities together to celebrate the creative talent of south-western Victoria

This presentation will introduce participants to the basics of creating graphic novels, starting with an overview of the comic format and its use in different genres. Participants will dive into the nuts and bolts of comics, looking at structure, the marriage of image and words, point-of-view, and pacing. Renée will share details about her process of writing and illustrating a graphic novel and provide guidance for finding a publisher.
