The 100th meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 8 pm at Parsons The New School, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby). The event is free and open to the public. Please note 8pm starting time. Presentations will be by Michael DeForge, Simon Hanselmann and Patrick Kyle. Michael DeForge goes through different finished and unfinished projects he's thrown away before publication. He discusses the value of abandoning projects, scripted versus improvised storytelling and the importance of digressions in the writing process. Simon Hanselmann will discuss the Australian comics scene, the virtues of Tumblr as a distribution platform, making money, 'the future' and his general comics making process. Also: various crackpot theories and obscure in-jokes.
