Producing graphic narrative can be a team effort as well as a one-person-job but. Through the workshop, the participants will be asked to work – by themselves or in a team – on a short work produced specifically for the web. At the end of the activity, the participants will post online – on an Instagram profile created specifically for the event – and will be able to check and comment everyone else’s work. Ideally, it will be possible to form a few couples but in the case we find ourselves with an odd number of participants, one of the teams will be formed by three people. By the end of the workshop, the participants will have a better understanding as to how the contribution of an external party might influence their creative process and how to create or adapt a product for the web.

For this workshop come prepared with drawing/writing materials and paper.

When you go to the online room for the workshop you will be asked to add your name when joining if you could add in brackets behind your name if you want to be a (writer) or an (artist) for the workshop activity that would be very helpful.



Monica Guerrasio is a doctoral candidate in Creative Writing at Lancaster University. She is working on translating her dark fantasy trilogy into a webcomic. Her main areas of interest revolve around transmedial translation and dark fantasy and dystopian fiction, although her research encompasses genre and gender, medium and form, and intersection between history and fiction. Currently, she is focused on elaborating a critical framework to study the collaborative nature of graphic narrative. Prior to her doctorate, she studied History and Journalism in Italy which was followed by a Master in Journalism in the United Kingdom.
