with Darren Koziol

Take your work to the next level, as Darren Koziol uncovers the essential elements for transforming your story into a great graphic novel.

After writing hundreds of graphic novels, Darren knows what it takes for a story to survive the crossover from words on the page, to words and images. Find out how to structure your stories for the graphic novel format – whatever your genre – and all of the essentials for writing graphic novels.

For those of you ready to bring an illustrator in on your work, Darren will take you through the ins and outs of a successful author/illustrator relationship. If you’ve ever wanted to develop a graphic novel this is your opportunity to get the inside scoop and fast track your work.

About Darren:

Darren Koziol, publishing as DARK OZ, is Australia’s leading independent comics producer. He has created over 40 graphic novels since 2010, showcasing over 100 Australian artists. Initially including other writers, Darren now writes all of the stories himself, carefully selecting illustrators for their style of art to complement each story.
