Comic book author J.M. DeMatteis will be leading a writing workshop called “Imagination 101” the weekend of April 13-15 at Modern Myths in Northampton, MA.
Join master storyteller J.M. DeMatteis for a weekend exploring the realms of imagination, from the metaphysical to the practical. We’ll ponder the big questions…
~ Where do ideas come from?
~ What part does will play in the creative process?
~ Is the best writing actually an act of channeling?
~ Do we create the story or does the story create us?
…and tackle the day-to-day realities of a career writing superhero sagas, fantasy epics and animation:
~ What’s the difference between “Marvel style” and “full script”?
~ What’s the value of editors?
~ Are agents necessary?
~ How do you handle rejection without jumping out the nearest window?
Come prepared to listen—as JMD shares stories and insights gleaned from more than thirty years writing comics, television, film and novels—but be prepared to work: you’ll pitch ideas, dialogue artwork and help create a story from the ground up.
The cost of the class is $415.00. Pre-registration is required. Learn more at http://www.jmdematteis.com/2012/01/far-reaches-of-imagination.html and http://www.modern-myths.com/.
