Free Comic Book Writing Class for Kids!

February 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Attention Queens parents, teachers, and kids: free creative writing classes available again at Queens Library!

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the writing of prose and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Library, is offering free creative writing classes for kids and teens.

The next class is Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.–2:30 p.m. at Queens Library at Briarwood, located at 85-12 Main St for kids ages 8 through 12:

“Building Your Own Comic Book”

There are many components that go into the construction of a comic book, but it all starts with a script. Behind every hero saving the day is a writer. In this workshop, you will begin to construct your own characters, and learn the basics behind crafting a comic book script that can be used to visually tell a story.

Chris Antzoulis is a New York-based poet and comic book writer with an MFA in writing from Sarah Lawrence College. His poetry has appeared in Yes PoetryNewtown LiteraryLuna Luna, FLAPPERHOUSE, decomP magazinE, Madcap Magazine, and others. He currently lives in Queens, NY, with his two evil cats and teaches creative writing at Mercy College.

One student in each class will be randomly selected to receive a free hardcover notebook to keep all their writing in!

This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
