More Funny, Less Money

how-to.jpgThe (still) elaborately costumed educational boosters at mediabistro.com are handing out more than fun-size Snickers this day after Halloween. They’ve asked us to pass along a special treat: 25% off any online or in-person course, workshop, or seminar when you sign up today, November 1. The deal comes just in time to save on mb’s one-night seminar in comic book and graphic novel writing, which takes place Wednesday evening in Los Angeles. Taught by comics writer, consultant, and publicist David Seidman, the seminar will outline the entire comics-making process, from devising a proposal and writing word balloons to surviving Comic-Con and handling Hollywood. By the end of class, you’ll be ready to create a plot and script for a short comics story and help Disney monetize all that recently acquired Marvel IP. Use the code NOV25 when you enroll to get the autumnal discount. Like all good offers, this expires at midnight.
