Unlock Your Own Story

This year we are excited to take Telling Tales – Celebrating Graphic Novels online with three very special digital workshops. Stories truly can connect us, and the best part about our event going online is that you don’t have to be in Hamilton to participate! We can’t wait to welcome teens and tweens from across Canada and beyond as they connect with young adult authors and illustrators. 

Our event may be over but….

If you weren’t able to join us live for the Celebrating Graphic Novels workshops where we learned from the pros and discovered how to get a story out of our head and onto the page not to worry, you can re-watch these amazing workshops online thanks to our friends at the Hamilton Public Library! Viewers will learn practical tools and strategies for creating characters, illustrations and storytelling.

Be sure to have a pencil/pen and paper with you. We can’t wait to see what you create!
