A limited number of scholarships are available! Writers who are low-income and/or of marginalized identities are particularly encouraged to apply.

The comics we first encounter in the world are often funny: gag panels, newspaper strips, children's comic books. Humor is so fundamental to the origin of the medium that it’s incorporated into its name. In this workshop, you'll participate in a fast-paced exercise to develop ideas for funny comic strips, which you will see through to completion. From generating an idea to drawings to producing a finished work, this experience will give you a crash course in cartooning.

Jessica Campbell is an interdisciplinary artist originally from Victoria, British Columbia. She is the author of three graphic novels, including Rave (Drawn & Quarterly, 2022), and her work has been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout North America. She is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at Saint Norbert College (De Pere, WI).
