2011 Workshops and Presentations
Saturday, March 19, 2011 Concurrent with the Book Fair
1:00pm – Zoetropes: Analog AnimationOur friends from Squeaky Wheel will be presenting their homemade zoetrope and giving participants a chance to make their own animated strips – learn all about this antique animation technique and how to turn your old record player into an analog animation machine.
2:30pm – Copyright, Fair Use, and other Legal IssuesSure it might not sound fun at first – but this is your chance as a small-presser to ask all the questions you’ve always wanted to as well as learn about touchy subjects like trademarks, unauthorized biographies, and defamation. Lawyer Steven Fox guides you through and answers your questions.
4:00pm – Comics: Creation, Publication, and PromotionSuccessful local comic artist Kyle Kaczmarczyk talks about his creative process, his work, and how he gets it all out there. A must for anyone making and distributing their own comics.
Please support our poets, writers, artists, and projects by spreading the word.
