Saints and Sinners Fest in New Orleans May 12!

Saturday May 12, 10:00 A.M.
TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY: WORDS AND IMAGES IN GRAPHIC NOVELS AND COMICS
What are the opportunities and challenges in telling a story with a combination of text and pictures? In this panel, we’ll hear from writers who have worked in both prose and comic formats, and from comics creators who have dabbled in picture-free prose. How do the different formats affect the creative process? How does the collaboration between writer and artist work? What trends are emerging in queer comics? And how can would-be graphic novelists and comics writers find collaborators and break into publishing on the web and in print?
Panelists: Abby Denson, Tim Fish, and Kelly McQuain.
Moderator: Jim Gladstone.
