Editors’ Day 2012

Posted on 20 April 2012 by Duncan

The SCAD sequential art department will host leading comic book publishers and editors at its annual Editors’ Day Friday, May 18, and Saturday, May 19, 2012 at SCAD-Savannah. Editors’ Day is a two-day event where editors and publishers will review SCAD sequential art students’ portfolio in Norris Hall and the SCAD Museum of Art, with panel discussions at the SCAD Museum of Art Theater on Saturday from 11 a.m.-12 noon.

Visiting editors and publishers include: Chris Staros, Publisher, Top Shelf Productions; Chris Warner, Senior Editor, Dark Horse; Jill Beaton, Assistant Editor & Talent, ONI Press; Mark Doyle, Associate Editor, DC/Vertigo; Calista Brill, Editor, First Second; Bobbie Chase, Executive Editor, DC; Jeanine Schaefer, Editor, Marvel; Sana Amanat, Associate Editor, Marvel; Traci Todd, Senior Editor Children’s Publishing, Viz Media; and Rebecca Taylor,
Editor, Archaia.

Editors’ Day is open to all students at any SCAD campuses (including eLearning), and alumni. Students must apply for portfolio reviews, which will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are available in an interactive PDF on SEQALab.com, and students must submit samples from their portfolio. Alumni, Atlanta campus and eLearning students can email applications with portfolio samples to talbano@scad.edu. Although graduating students and alumni have priority, all student levels are welcome, and every effort will be made to assign students to an editor or publisher, based on availability.

SCAD Editors’ Day has been a proud part of the history of the sequential art department for many years. The event represents one of the few major academic acknowledgements of comic art and sequential art storytelling in the nation. The Editors’ Day permits guests to discuss sequential art concerns from many differing points of view and provides students with an opportunity to network and learn from a variety of top industry professionals.
