Writing Excuses Season 3 Episode 25: The Business of Writing Comics » Writing Excuses

I’ve actually taken a few classes at UCLA that focus on comics writing, and most of what was said here is in line with what I learned about the business in them. In one class Greg Rucka came in and talked about his career and experiences and Geoff Johns come in for the second class I took. The teacher of the class is also a full-time professional in the industry, so we were lucky enough to hear firsthand what the industry is like from a number of professionals. One thing that stood out to me in class is that if you’re only a writer, it’s very, very tough to get anywhere in comics today. If you’re also an artist (and I mean a reasonably skilled artist), you have a slightly better chance of getting somewhere, though it’s still very difficult. Unfortunately, in my opinion, focusing on comics as opposed to other types of entertainment writing probably isn’t worth the time and effort. There are other creative markets that pay better given the comics’ market’s existing barriers to entry. If you’re looking for a career in a field, you have to look at whether it’s even possible to sustain a career in it, full-time, in the first place. For most people, comics just isn’t going to be worth the frustration given how little it pays. That said, writing comics is a great creative outlet and helps writers who are typically focused on words to visualize scenes and action better. If you’re a writer who is lucky enough to have an artist collaborator, it’s even better because you can potentially see how your words translate into visuals on a page. It’s also great practice for planning storyboards if you want to work in either film or video games. Lastly, I do have to add that for me writing comics has been pretty fun, regardless of its career potential. http://www.writingexcuses.com/2009/11/15/writing-excuses-season-3-episode-25-the-business-of-writing-comics/

Career Innovation - Manifesto Podcast

There are still many deeply embedded perceptions and practices that inhibit the agility that companies demand, and the flexibility for which workers yearn. There seems to be a missing link; the link between organisational agility and individual flexibility. The Ci Group’s 2005 Agile Resourcing programme set out to identify the ideal employment deals for tomorrow’s diverse workforce, together with evidence of how companies can increase scalability, versatility and flexibility. It included a new global survey of knowledge workers. The resulting "Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace" distils the outputs from the programme and seeks to challenge some of the assumptions about work that are preventing companies and individuals from achieving the kind of workplace each desires. The “Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace” reveals ways companies can create an enterprising results-based culture. http://www.careerinnovation.com/viewreport.asp?ReportID=6
