Editors’ Day 2014
The SCAD sequential art department will host leading comic book publishers and editors at its annual Editors’ Day Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12, 2014 at SCAD Savannah. Editors’ Day is a two-day event where editors and publishers will review SCAD sequential art students’ portfolio in Norris Hall with panel discussion.
Visiting editors and publishers include: Traci Todd, Senior Editor for Children’s Publishing, Viz Media; Eric Harburn, Editor, Boom! Studios and Archaia Entertainment; Chris Staros, Publisher, Top Shelf Productions; James Lucas Jones, Editor in Chief, Oni Press; and Chris Warner, Senior Editor, Dark Horse.
Editors’ Day is open to all students at any SCAD locations, (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, SCAD Atlanta and eLearning students can email applications with portfolio samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although alumni and 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.
