We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. If you have questions about accessibility or require any other accommodation to participate in this event, please contact Accessibility Manager Helyn Marshall at email@example.com or via telephone at (614) 688-3890. Requests made by September 25 will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the Wexner Center for the Arts will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
Do you love to write AND read comics? This session is for youth ages 13–17 who have questions about writing and pathways to working in comics, including strategies on how to get started and how to get into a regular studio/writing practice.
This Zoom session is free and will last about an hour-and-a-half to two hours, and features guest Ebony Flowers. Flowers is a scholar, teacher, and cartoonist who lives in Denver, well-known for her book Hot Comb. She has won an Eisner Award for Best Short Story and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work-Youth/Teens. She will be joining us via Zoom from Denver.
Bring your sketchbook, something you are working on or want to write about in addition to who your influences might be. What are your most favorite comics and why? Come ready to meet like-minded youth and enter into dialogue! Please note that the session will fill fast and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
To register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or use the registration link on the left.
If you have questions about the session, we invite you to reach out to Jean Pitman, our Community, Youth, and Family Programs Manager at email@example.com.
