Youth Graphic Novel Workshop

Local bookstore and friend of the Friends A Great Good Place for Books is offering a Graphic Novel Writing Workshop for Young Readers and Writers this fall. This class is not sponsored by or affiliated with FOML or the OPL, but we thought you might be interested.

This six-week writing workshop, taught by a credentialed teacher, shows kids that reading and writing can be fun, easy, and totally awesome. Students will read and discuss their favorite graphic novels during the first part of each class, and the rest of the class will be devoted to building a strong story with good dialogue and narration. At the end of the workshop, students will produce their own comic using the Comic Life program.

The class will be Sundays from 5-6:30 p.m for kids ages 8 and up, beginning September 12th and ending October 24th. Registration ends September 8. For details, contact A Great Good Place for Books.
