Graphic Memoir

You don’t need to be great at drawing to tell stories from your life in words and pictures. In this workshop we’ll practice turning ourselves into characters as we delve into making and dissecting autobiographical comics. Through a combination of writing prompts and visual examples for inspiration, we’ll make a wide range of graphic narratives, from diary comics to memory maps. All levels of experience are welcome.

This workshop will take place online using Zoom. A Zoom link for this workshop will be sent the week before it starts.
