Join us in kicking off Next Steps, a monthly literary series for writers on the publishing pathway. We’ve reimagined our popular annual Ladder Literary Conference as an ongoing program of talks, pitch sessions, agent speed dating, workshops, and more with published authors and experts from the publishing industry–some live, others Skyped.
Talk: Writing the Graphic Novel
Join author Alex Sanchez in conversation with Karen vanMeenen as he discusses the process of writing a graphic novel, including collaborating with an artist. His You Brought Me the Ocean is a new young adult graphic novel from DC that puts a contemporary twist on Aqualad’s classic origin story and tells an eloquent coming-out romance. Lambda Award-winning author Alex Sanchez (Rainbow Boys) and New York Times bestselling illustrator Julie Maroh (Blue Is the Warmest Color) are two voices that have been instrumental in shaping the LGBTQ+ experience in young adult literature.
