Our last Intro to Writing Class sold out weeks early, and our current Advanced Comic Book Writing class sold out in record time -- before we could even post about it on this blog. So if you're interested in getting started with comic book writing, sign up for our Intro class now!
Your instructor, Andy Schmidt, worked on nearly every major character in the Marvel canon during his time there, and edited hit titles such as X-Factor, the Annihilation saga, Alias, and more.
At IDW, he managed major franchises like GI Joe and Transformers. He is also the author of the Eagle Award-winning book, The Insider's Guide to Creating Comics and Graphic Novels, published by Impact Books.
In this six-week course, not only will you learn comic book writing from a pro, but the course will be packed with practical, real-world advice on the industry and "breaking in" to help you pursue your career in comics!
That's why Comics Experience alum, Nick Spencer, tweeted:
"For all aspiring comic pros asking for advice on craft/breaking in, I once again highly recommend Andy Schmidt's @ComicExperience courses."A few years ago, Nick had to move to New York City to take Comics Experience classes (check out his guest blog here to read that tale).
But you don't have to move, now that our courses are offered LIVE, online. You can attend from wherever you live. You'll be able to see your instructor and his desktop, interact with your classmates, and discuss your classwork in real time. And you'll be able to communicate with your classmates all week long in a special, dedicated online forum for just you and your class.
Will this be the year you decide to pursue your comic book writing dream?
Enrollment is open now.
