Atelier Course Teaches Students “How To Write a Graphic Novel”

The Princeton Comics Notebook

Flip through The Princeton Comics Notebook, an anthology of stories created by Princeton Atelier students.

In the fall 2023 Princeton Atelier course, “How To Write a Graphic Novel” students worked with E.S. Glenn, a regular cartoonist with The New Yorker, and special guests to explore the underlying structure of comics. In addition to drawing, students focused on other aspects of comic making such as book design, translation, publishing, and distribution. The semester culminated in a student-published comix anthology, The Princeton Comics Notebook, which was presented at an end of semester reading at Labyrinth Books on December 6, 2023.
