Learn how to create your own autobiographical graphic novel by generating storytelling ideas, developing a narrative voice, and conveying emotions through illustrative language.

This workshop will be delivered through a series of videos that will guide you through activities, source material, and the process of mapping out your story. Themes that each video will explore, include:

Narrative Voice: what is the overall personality of the story and how can this be expressed through word choice in narration.

Illustration: How can that personality be expressed through colour choice, animation style (realistic or cartoon), and background

Different Types of Creative Writing: memoir, pop-fiction and genre, non-linear, poetry, mish-mashes of different types as well as when to use these different styles.
