Superhero Writing for Teens

This event has been rescheduled to Wednesday, July 15, 2015 from 1 to 5PM.

Authors, screenwriters, and artists all have many more options than ever before to tell their tales—what type of storyteller are you?

Matthew Phillion, author of the Indestructibles series of Young Adult superhero novels, will share his experience writing for the genre while going over what sorts of options are available for aspiring writers to create super-stories to help writers learn what opportunities they have and which style might be best for them and how to find the right collaborators to bring their stories to life. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of their superhero writing with them.
