Students will learn publishing basics, including: how to write pitches; self-publishing techniques for web and print; and historical aspects of comics' fascinating relationship with periodical and book publishing, past and present.

With a focus on editorial, literary and underground comics, post-war to post-millennial, the seminar portion of the class covers personal narrative, comics journalism, fiction (long and short form), and nonlinear comics.

Comics is an all-day studio.
