Archaia: How to Effectively Pitch a Story

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this interactive panel, Archaia editors and creators will offer their advice to aspiring comic book creators on how to better pitch their story. First, the audience will be asked to suggest an occupation, a setting, and a character motivation (e.g., a dead zoologist in Hell trying to get out), then nine volunteers will be chosen and broken up into three teams of three. An Archaia editor or creator will be assigned to each team, and the team will go outside the room to come up with a quick pitch for a story. Meanwhile, a fourth Archaia editor will put on a presentation outlining the dos and don't's of pitching for the rest of the audience. After 15 minutes, each team will make their presentation, "pitching" it to the audience, who will ultimately vote to choose the one they like the best. The winning team will get a prize pack of Archaia hardcover books. With Archaia editor-in-chief Stephen Christy, chief creative officer Mark Smylie, publisher Mike Kennedy, and writer Josh Ryan (Syndrome).
