here's a little plug for my pal, J.M. DeMatteis' writer's workshop that, if you're an aspiring writer or just interested in the craft, you really oughta check out...

writing for comic books, graphic novels and animation
with J.M. DeMatteis

Friday April 13th, 7 pm to 9 pm
Saturday April 14th, 10 am to 5 pm (90 minute break for lunch)
Sunday April 15th, 9 am to 1 pm

Modern Myths
34 Bridge Street #4
Northampton, MA. 01060

Join master storyteller J.M. DeMatteis for a weekend exploring the realms of imagination, from the metaphysical to the practical. We’ll ponder the big questions...

~ Where do ideas come from?
~ What part does will play in the creative process?
~ Is the best writing actually an act of channeling?
~ Do we create the story or does the story create us?

...and tackle the day-to-day realities of a career writing superhero sagas, fantasy epics and animation:

~ What’s the difference between “Marvel style” and “full script”?
~ What’s the value of editors?
~ Are agents necessary?
~ How do you handle rejection without jumping out the nearest window?

Come prepared to listen—as JMD shares stories and insights gleaned from more than thirty years writing comics, television, film and novels—but be prepared to work: you’ll pitch ideas, dialogue artwork and help create a story from the ground up.

Bring all your questions, too: this won’t be a brief, two hour seminar. You’ll have an entire weekend, in an intimate setting, to explore your own creativity with J.M. DeMatteis as your guide.
