LEARN HOW TO WRITE A COMIC BOOK.

Writing for comics demands a “very particular set of skills,” unlike any other form of writing, but sharing traits of screenwriters and playwrights. The key is being able to think in pictures, and visualize your story in a frozen moment in time of still, single images. Over the four-week class with acclaimed comics writer Ron Marz, you will learn the theory, language, and pacing necessary for writing comics.  

MASTER THE PAGE.

The comic writer’s job is not only to tell a compelling story, but to provide the artist with all the information needed to create the story pages. You will learn proper script format, and come to understand and embrace the demands, limitations and possibilities of the comic page. Time will also be devoted to plot, character arcs, and the art of the pitch, the all-important first step in getting your story approved.

COMPLETE YOUR OWN STORY.

The best way to learn to make comics is to make comics. Over the course of four classes, students will complete a script for a comic short story. Your story will evolve from concept, to outline, to breakdowns, to finished pages with dialogue, culminating in a document ready to present to an artist.

    COMIC BOOK WRITING CLASS WAS FANTASTIC! Class was detailed, great conversation and instruction. Actually finished class with an actual comic story ready to send to an artist. I’m very happy I signed up!

    Ron Marz is an expert in the comic book business and I learned a great deal in this very informative writers workshop. It’s hard to know starting out with comics how to write a professional script. Comic legend Jim Starlin taught him and Ron now teaches us. From how writers set up the pages to working with artists. I think everybody has a story or two and it’s great to know if I hire an illustrator for a comic book they can follow my guidance to convey the story how I want it told. It was also fun to hear about Stan Lee and meet some new people.
