Comics is a visual medium. Not everything about a story is apparent from a quick glance, but comics readers can tell a lot simply by flipping or scrolling through pages about who is, and is not, included. The class will be an overview of strategies for Writing the Other sensitively and convincingly in comics, including character and setting design, finding useful reference for your artist (including when the artist is you), dialogue and captions, and staging scenes.

What Are Master Classes?
Seminars designed as a deep dive into a specific Writing the Other topic. While the online classes, Weekend Intensives, and Classic seminars provide a good foundation, the Master Classes go beyond the basics and allow writers to learn from and ask questions of experts in specific areas.
Who Should Take These Classes?
These seminars are available to any writer, but they assume some familiarity with the basics of the concepts found in the Writing the Other: A Practical Approach book. If you have not attended a Weekend Intensive or other course, retreat, or workshop, you can still take a Master Class as long as you have read the book and familiarize yourself with the material on the Resources page before class. (We suggest reading Invisible and Invisible 2 plus the links at the bottom of the page.) This will give you enough foundation for this Master Class.
