Creating a Graphic Novel–Cody Shaw
Try your hand at sequential storytelling! This workshop is for people who are interested in visual storytelling, and want to learn to communicate with more than just words. Get started with some simple exercises and get used to a new way of getting through to readers!

Creating Character & Dialogue- Mingshu Dong
Learn how to develop well-rounded and realistic characters for your story. Focus will be on character creation, and dialogue. Learn how to write dialogue that fits specific characters and using dialogue to show instead of tell in a story.

Creating a Sense of Place–Yilin Wang
How do you create a fresh and vivid setting that leaves a lasting impression on your readers? Come explore the art of creating setting through this hands-on, interactive workshop. We’ll discuss ways to generate setting ideas, deepen your understanding of the story world, and use sensory details in your writing.
