The Graphic Medicine International Collective, in collaboration with Penn State College of Medicine, are launching a project to collect and tell stories from the front lines. The project will connect front-line workers with comic artists to tell visual stories about the front-line workers’ experience during the COVID pandemic. We are aiming for a collection of about 20-25 stories to be shared online (and potentially published as an anthology), and are enlisting a diverse group or artists to help tell these stories. It’s meant to be a true collaboration between front-line worker and artist, with the two parties meeting and crafting the visual narrative together. Each story will be about 4-8 pages in length, in the form of a comic. We have funding available for both frontline storytellers and artists.
Frontline Workers! Do you have a story you’d like to share about your experience on the front-lines during the COVID-19 pandemic? No prior writing or artistic experience is necessary, only a story to tell, a willingness to share it, and a collaborative spirit.
Interested? Email Michael and Alex: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please use the email subject line “Frontline Comic Project.”
We look forward to hearing from you!
