67: Sarah Yoon (3 Questions) – Gutter Talk Podcast

Several of the Making Comics Worldwide crew graced the rooms and halls of WonderCon 2015 recently and while there, Adam was able to record four upcoming podcasts, the live Gutter Talk panel “Storytelling in Comics” included, in a 24 hour period. That has to be some kind of record, right? And while very little time was spent wandering the floor, it was a worthy sacrifice to be able to capture conversations like the one you’re about to listen to.

In this Three Questions episode, freelance writer and soon-to-be mom Sarah Yoon sits down with Karyn Keene, co-founder of Storyforge Productions, a company with a stated mission of helping tell stories across various mediums. In an age where there are numerous ways of telling a story, it can be both tricky and overwhelming. One of the biggest steps to being a better effective storyteller that Sarah discusses is knowing the type of writer and storyteller you are. Using ideas from her book, “Firestarters: Multi-Disciplinary Inspiration for Writers,” Sarah dives in to the three types of writers she has discovered through her research.

Whether you are a writer or not, this podcast episode is a must-listen. It will not only make you stronger as a writer and artist overall, it could help you understand other writers you will encounter in your career and life.

These are Sarah’s three questions:

Question 1: What are the three ways creativity manifests itself in writers?

Question 2: What do you find yourself working the most with?

Question 3: How did you decide what you wanted to write about?


12: Shelley Couvillion – Gutter Talk Podcast

“Not only does the world have young geniuses but it also has old masters,” says Shelley Couvillion, artist for Storyforge Productions. Subscribe to it or not, that can be one heck of a realization to come to when you’re in the early stages of your art and comic creation career. And that’s not even counting the starving part. Shelley, though, doesn’t seem to be fazed by it. In fact, even though she’s still working on finding her voice, it’s pretty obvious she’s definitely on her way and when she does fully find it, well, let’s just hope she remembers the little people.

Adam is joined in consecutive weeks by Kevin as they sit down with Shelley, another Storyforger, to discuss the good, the bad, and the wow-I-can’t-believe-I-said-that.
