SelfMadeHero Presents: How To Create A Graphic Novel Masterclass

One of our favourite publishers SelfMadeHero is teaming up with Guardian Masterclass this Sunday for a talk on how to create graphic novels. If you’re London-based and have Sunday free, you’ll want to make this talk!

The talk is going to cover the history of the graphic novel, as well as practical advice on scriptwriting, finding the best artists for your story and marketing your book to the right audience. It starts at 9.30am and runs till 5.30pm in The Guardian’s offices in 90 York Way, London.

The history side of the talk is from comics historian Paul Gravett, who wrote 1001 Comics To Read Before You Die, so we’re pretty sure he knows his stuff. The practical classes are run by some of the brightest stars in the comics medium, including Martin Rowson (Tristram Shandy – SelfMadeHero), Karrie Fransman (The House That Groaned), and Toby Litt (Dead Boy Detectives). The day ends with journalist Alex Fitch hosting a panel discussion featuring all the tutors, so any pressing questions you have will be answered on the day.

The class costs £119 and you can book yourself onto the course here. If any of you make it to the class, let us know what you think!
