About Us

Our Mission

The Graphic Novel Society at the University of Washington aims to:

  • promote graphic novels as legitimate forms of literature.
  • expand the comic/graphic novel reading horizons of its members.
  • create an environment where comic writers and artists can connect, learn, and collaborate.

Our Activities

We meet weekly for brief presentations by our members about comic art history, conventions, genres, techniques, and more.  Several times a year, we invite professional artists to speak to the club.  We occasionally go out to eat on the weekends.

Why Join?

  1. Network with skilled artists, and share your work to get praise and constructive criticism.
  2. Meet and get advice from professional artists.
  3. Artists can find writers, and vice versa, to create comic publishing teams.

We hope to see you there!
