Writing the Unthinkable Workshop with Lynda Barry

Writer-cartoonist Lynda Barry (Simpsons creator Matt Groening calls her “his biggest inspiration”) has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator, and teacher and found that they are very much alike. Barry is the author of The Freddie Stories, One! Hundred! Demons!, The! Greatest! of! Marlys!, Cruddy: An Illustrated Novel, Naked Ladies! Naked Ladies! Naked Ladies!, and The Good Times are Killing Me, which was adapted into a hit off-Broadway play. She has written three bestselling and acclaimed creative how-to graphic novels for Drawn & Quarterly: What It Is (which won the Eisner Award for Best Reality Based Graphic Novel) Picture This; and Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor. Lynda was born in Richland Center Wisconsin in 1956, and is a tenured arts professor at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

In her popular workshop, Lynda teaches an easy way to remember and write – all done by hand, with pen and paper. You’ll work (and laugh) your butt off, you can be as anonymous as you wanna be, and there’s no dreaded feedback (brrrr!) — only affirmation in the form of RIGHT ON +++
