Introducing SAM, Storytelling Across Media

SAM: Storytelling Across Media Symposium in San Francisco
A Special One-Day Symposium • Saturday, Nov. 5 in San Francisco, CA

Here’s some exciting news for Bay Area comics fans! San Francisco Comic-ConSM presents, in association with San Francisco Comics Fest, SAM, Storytelling Across Media, a one-day symposium for aspiring writers and artists, as well as professionals, interested in the art of storytelling. This event will be held on Saturday, November 5, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, 780 Mission Street in downtown San Francisco, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Admission is FREE, but online registration is encouraged. Seating in all symposium events is limited.

SAM is not your traditional comics convention. There is no Exhibit Hall or Autograph Area. SAM is all about storytelling, through a series of talks and workshops about how to tell a story in various media, including comics, gaming, animation, 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 and workshops. Special guests for this event are writer Rick Remender (Captain America, Black Science, Low) and comics creator/animation artist Stephan Franck (Silver).
