WITH KYLE VINGOE-CRAM
April 14, 2022, 6–8pm EST
Free + virtual program
This hands-on workshop will explore the art of comics, with a particular focus on writing fiction in a graphic novel format. We will investigate how literary ideas such as point of view and non linear narratives may be explored through the visual media of comics. We will be doing some comics-drawing exercises, so come prepared with a few ideas for what you want to write about.
You will need pencil and paper. Optional materials include felt pens, ink and brush, rulers, and whatever else you like to use to create.
Kyle Vingoe-Cram is a painter and emerging cartoonist from K’jipuktuk/Halifax who now lives in Ottawa. Their first graphic novel, Kettle Harbour, a slightly eerie queer drama set in rural Nova Scotia, is slated for release in 2023. Kyle studied Fine Art at NSCAD University, graduating with a BFA in 2010 and completed an MA in Art History at Queen’s University, studying Nova Scotian folk art and museum representation.
Making Comics: Writing Fiction as Comics is generously sponsored by the Departments of Art History & Conservation, English, and Gender Studies at Queen’s University.

Each year, a committee of students, staff, and faculty chooses a book for our Queen's community to read together. These books are ones that encourage readers to listen to underrepresented voices and frequently unheard stories. Through events and programming, Queen's community members are invited to meaningfully participate in critical and creative conversations that are inspired by the Queen's Reads books with a specific focus on questions concerning equity, diversity, and inclusion; community dialogue; and hope. All Queen's community members can opt into the Queen's Reads program and receive a free copy of the book. For the 2021-2022-year, electronic and limited physical copies of the Queen’s Reads book I Hope We Choose Love: A Trans Girl's Notes from the End of the World by Kai Cheng Thom are available on campus. If you have any questions about Queen's Reads, please contact Clarissa de Leon (co-ordinator): email@example.com
