Upcoming Panel at AWP

Awesome! The panel I’m moderating this Thursday was recommended in Entropy’s guide to AWP 2015 in Minneapolis! Here’s the description:

R141. The Voyage of Graphic Literary Forms

Four panelists who work at the intersection of graphic literature and translation discuss the challenges and benefits of transporting graphic literary forms from one language and culture to another. These writers, artists, and translators with backgrounds in comics creation, translation, editing, and publishing come together to share their experiences in reaching new audiences and markets for this expanding element in the creative writing landscape.
