Writers, get those great ideas out of your head and onto the page in this creative writing workshop with author Stephen Hines. Convert your amazing concept for a comic book or graphic novel into a page turner.

Learn the tricks of the trade, including:
. Setting the scene yet still starting your story with a bang
. Crafting a script that has narrative, dialogue, and art working in harmony
. Utilizing screenwriting techniques to create emotional reactions
. Plotting pages that compel readers to be unable to put your book down, and more!
Note: Will break for lunch.
About the Presenter
Stephen Hines was spawned, and currently lives, in Ohio. When he's not infiltrating the system by teaching high school English, he's holed up in his home writing.
So far he's published one graphic novel (Valedictorian USA: Vol. 1), a young adult novel (Hocus Focus), a short story in a dystopian sci-fi anthology with Das Krakenhaus Publishing (The End of the World as We Know It), a one-shot surrealist horror comic (Icon-O-Plastic), and has several ongoing comic book series (Valedictorian USA, Crackerstacker, and Zombie Fabulous!).
His prose memoir (Rebirth Defect: My Journey From Catholic Altar Boy to Teen Atheist to Adult Christian Metal Evangelist and Back to Atheism) was released in 2016 and will surely alienate the few friends he still has.
