Comics Experience is pleased to announced the next session of Advanced Comic Book Writing, taught by Comics Experience founder and acclaimed comic-book editor Andy Schmidt! This seven-week course is now open for enrollment, with classes beginning August 30th.
While previous Advanced Comic Book Writing courses have focused on a certain aspect of the writing craft, this session will provide a comprehensive overview of the art and craft of writing comics, buildings on the skills taught in Comics Experience’s Intro to Comic Book Writing course.
Andy noted that this class will focus on as much information about storytelling and comic books as we can pack into seven weeks. As in the introductory course, Andy starts with your story ideas, and builds up from there, teaching you how to bring your unique vision to life. While the introductory course provides you with the fundamentals to write a five-page comic, this class will provide you the tools you need to launch a long-form story. And by the course’s end, you will have a full first-issue script, ready to pitch to artists or publishers.
Advanced Comic Book Writing is available to all who have completed the Intro to Writing Course. But enrollment is limited, so check it out now! There are plenty more details available on the Courses section of our website, including an in-depth FAQ for each course listed.
