100 WRITERS _____ This month’s StoryCode Singapore meetup is a comic strip hacking workshop, come on down and meet the storymaker tribe

NOTE: This post is about my 100 WRITERS project.

Our coming Captain Cardboard comic strip hacking workshop will be the first StoryCode Singapore lab event for the year. We’re organising this together with the creative people from Panelgraph. Which is a support group for comics creators. They put out a digital compilation of members’ works every quarter. You can download their releases here. Panelgraph is launching this Starving Artist Fair because they believe that local storymakers are hungry for new connections, challenges and collaborative opportunities. As part of StoryCode Singapore, I’ll be conducting a Captain Cardboard comic prototyping activity. You can read about it here. This event is free, just sign up at our Meetup page. Also, for S$20 you can book a booth to promote your original comics, art, and related merchandise. Details here:

Join StoryCode Singapore and Super Cool Books for a fast and fun comic strip hacking session. 

You'll get a free creative kit to make your own "Captain Cardboard vs Bruce Boh" comic strip. We'll show you how to conceptualise and draft your own five-panel story, and then share this on social media so you can engage new readers right away. 

You'll experience hands-on story prototyping and lean digital/social media publishing, so you can apply this to your own projects. Note: For maximum exposure, all content should be family friendly.
