YWW Southern Oregon: Secrets from the Gutter – The Storytelling Advantages of Comics

November 3 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Secrets from the Gutter – The Storytelling Advantages of Comics

Comic books and graphics novels are unique and entertaining. The storytelling process uses both the written word and pictures, creating something that is more than the sum of its parts. Comics as a form of literature is more than capes and cowls. It’s a special agreement between author and reader that uses the power of closure to offer a one-of-a-kind and rewarding reading experience.

Our group is open to all teens (age 13-18)! Membership in Young Willamette Writers is $20 per year and includes not only the monthly workshops with published authors, but also:
· raffle drawings at each workshop for free books from the visiting presenters (winners will receive a copy of the presenter’s current book AND a copy for their SCHOOL LIBRARY, too!),
· discussions and networking with writing industry professionals (like publishers and agents!),
· and the opportunity to attend other YWW events!
You can register at the workshop or online at http://willamettewriters.org/register/. Feel free to contact me with any questions, by email, heathersransom@gmail.com. We hope to see you at our next southern Oregon YWW meeting!
