Saturday, October 7th, 10:30am-5:30pm at The Comic-Con Museum
SAM: Storytelling Across Media, is a one-day symposium for aspiring writers and artists, as well as professionals, interested in the art of storytelling presented by Comic-Con. This event will be held on Saturday, October 7, at the Comic-Con Museum, 2131 Pan American Plaza in Balboa Park, from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Admission is included with the purchase of a Comic-Con Museum ticket. Seating in all symposium events is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
SAM is not your traditional comics convention. There is no Exhibit Hall but there will be panels and signings. SAM is all about storytelling, through a series of talks about how to tell a story in various media, including comics, books, gaming, movies, and more. It explores the similarities and differences in telling stories through different media and focuses on the craft of telling a story through creator lectures.
SAM: Storytelling Across Media is part of San Diego Comic Convention family of events. SDCC is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.
