I know it's been a while, but now that deadlines have subsided a bit ... it's time for a workshop!
I'm thinking Mid-March in the Brooklyn Burb. Who's in?

December Workshop Dates

Wow. Talk about a crazy couple of weeks - anyway ...

Either December 8th or December 15th - will be a duel workshop / holiday party. Please let me know which days you'll be available.

August's Workshop: On The Road!

Heya folks,

As I mentioned previously, this month's workshop will be held on August 18th at 7 pm.

This month, the Brooklyn Comic Writer's Workshop will be on the road, headed towards Wild Pig Comics in Kenilworth, New Jersey.

New Yorkers wishing to attend the workshop will meet in New York's Penn Station at 6 o'clock and take the train down to NJ, where they will be chauffeured to the event!

Why New Jersey you ask?

Well, for one, several of our members are from the Jersey area, and it seemed like it was about time for us to bring the event to them.

Secondly, the folks at Wild Pig Comics are simply amazing!

Thirdly, because it'll be fun!

As always, refreshments will be available!

So, if you'd like to attend, please post in the comment section below, or RSVP at david.gallaher@gmail.com !

Warren on Writing

From Warren Ellis:

People keep asking me for tips on writing comics. I can't handle all these requests and questions individually, because, well, I've got comics to write. But what I can do is give you some scripts to read. These are all in RTF format, readable by any word processor. And if yours somehow can't read them -- well, these are freeware and don't come with a support line. Also, I can't provide you with the script to your favourite comic, whatever that may be. Scripts:

FELL #1 (which can be read along with the actual published issue on the web for free, even)


BCWW Anthology

This is simply just an early morning musing, but in the future (maybe seven or eight months from now), I'd certainly be interested in putting together our works into a Brooklyn Comic Writer's Anthology sampler to sell at conventions. Is there interest in this idea?
