Program Description

About this event:

Presented as part of TCPL's Will Eisner Week celebration, we are excited to welcome the Graphic Novel Advisory Board (GNAB) for a virtual comic writing workshop!

Love to draw, but having trouble doing the writing part of comics? Does your text seem out of place? Not sure about the plot? Spend an hour with GNAB learning about narrative, plot planning, and how to make sure your text is effective. No experience necessary. Supplies required are writing utensils and paper.


The Graphic Novel Advisory Board promotes the use of graphic novels to enhance literacy and to provide an outlet for creative writing and art, especially for young people. They work with libraries to help expand and enhance library collections to make graphic novels more available for readers of all ages. Made up of Ithaca College students, they write reviews, publish newsletters, give presentations, run workshops, and complete site-visits to help librarians curate their selections. Visit their website for more information.


This book discussion will be offered via Zoom. Participants registered here will receive an email with details on how to access the meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Sophia McKissick at
