My Life in Strips shares stories through the medium of graphic novels. Specially designed workshops will be delivered to students who will learn to create their own comic strips. They will learn both elements of story creation as well as turning stories into a full comic book script. Participants will experience the full comic-making process first hand, and see their work published in a professional-standard comic book. In addition participants will have the opportunity to enter a European wide competition with an exhibition of winning entries will be displayed at each festival participating in the project.
