SAM at Home – Storytelling for Kids Panel

Over the weekend was the 2020 SAM: Storytelling Across Media mini-convention. The event this year was all online and included 14 spectacular panels featuring a number of brilliant storytellers from across all different mediums. The panels were recorded and are now available to watch on Comic Con’s YouTube Channel, so I thought I’d share a little more about the discussion I was a part of, and share the link.

Storytelling for Kids

Everyone remembers their favorite comic as a kid, the one that held a special place in their heart. Kids are discovering that joy every day as they delve into the current treasure trove of comics for the young, and let’s be honest, the young at heart as well. What makes a kids’ comic great? How do you get kids excited about comics? How do you create stories aimed for this specific audience? Learn all this and more from esteemed creators Victoria Ying (City of Secrets), Stephanie Cooke (Oh My Gods!), Lilah Sturges (Girl Haven), Meggie Ramm (Teaching Kids Comics), and Sarah Kuhn (Shadow of the Batgirl). Moderated by Laura Jones (operations and programming coordinator for Comic-Con International: San Diego).
