Spring 2017: Memory Comics Workshop


Spring 2017: Memory Comics Workshop


Out of stock


Sunday, April 23, 2017
10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Class meets at Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington

Students will begin the workshop with a memory writing exercise and then adapt their writing into a comic on the spot. Nicole J. Georges will guide students through basic comic layout and construction, terminology, character design, and process in this 3-hour workshop. Students will leave with the material and resources to begin their own comics. 

Nicole Georges’ Lambda Award-winning graphic memoir, Calling Dr. Laura, was called “engrossing, lovable, smart and ultimately poignant” by Rachel Maddow, and “disarming and haunting, hip and sweet, all at once” by Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home.“ Allô, dr Laura? was an Official Selection at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. 

She has been publishing her own zines and comics for 20 years and has toured the country extensively, including two appearances on Michelle Tea’s Sister Spit tour. Nicole’s diary comic zine, Invincible Summer, has been collected into two anthology books.
