The Joy of Making Mini-Comics

A talk by Dawn Wing
Reference and Instruction Librarian, Metropolitan State University

Collaborating with campus partners at a diverse, urban university setting during the pandemic, I have had opportunities to facilitate virtual mini-comics workshops that encourage local public school (elementary to high school) groups and college students to engage with their own creative expression through play and visual storytelling. I would like to share my approach and tips for implementing such hands-on virtual sessions through Zoom, especially if other library workers are interested in creating/adapting similar creative workshops in their own communities as well. I would also discuss how I briefly integrate information about comics in libraries, my own passion for comics as a librarian, reader and creator - and then show how anyone can make their own using minimal supplies. No previous experience required! In this presentation, I can also model the same brief mini-comic/zine demonstration I have done in my previous workshops, and participants are welcome to follow along.
