Comics Experience Alumni Network

If you've been following this website for a while, you know that I'm an alum of Andy Schmidt's Comics Experience writing courses.

One of the big benefits of the class -- y'know, aside from the learning and writing and such -- was getting to know my fellow classmates. I've learned a lot from them, we've helped each other out, and we even produced the Tales from the Comics Experience Anthology together. I've also had the good luck to run across some folks from subsequent writing and coloring classes.

Which got me to thinking...We really need to have some way to meet, network, and communicate across the many great Comics Experience classes.

That thought has led to the creation of the Comics Experience Alumni Network.

What is it? Simply an entirely FREE, private Google Group/"listserv"/email list for anyone who has ever taken one of Andy's classes.

What do we do with it? Whatever we want! Let's see where it goes. If you're going to a convention and want to see if any alumni are attending, send a note. If you want fellow graduates to know your own anthology has been printed, share the news. Need advice? Looking for a writer, artist, colorist? Well, you get the idea.

If you're a past student of Comics Experience and would like to get in on the fun, just drop me a note at rob@PandaDogPress.com with your name and the class(es) you took.

If you haven't already taken one of Andy's classes, what the heck are you waiting for? Get to it...and drop me a note when you're done!

I hope to "see" you there!
