This Week in our Community

We’ve recently made a big move over to the Mighty Network, a group sharing platform where the SAW community can share, workshop and develop ideas.

Every week we’ll bring you snippets from both the public and private groups. Otherwise, the SAW online community is available 24/7, wherever you are in the world. You just have to join us.

Every week we share what comics we are reading. What comics are inspiring us.

Not quite a comic, this poem-cum-animated illustration comes from artist Rachel Ang and poet Hera Lindsay Bird, with animation by Jacqui Hagen (shared on the Mighty Network by recent graduate Emma).

FREE RESOURCES

There’s a host of free resources available through SAW. Some are from fellow artists and writers sharing what inspires them. Others are apart of SAW’s extensive online Library. Including this! A survey of trees!

How do you draw shadows? What about leaf clusters? Bark? Branching? Light? Texture? This survey has you covered. Check it out!

Head to the Mighty Network for more leads on Free Resources.

FROM THE MEMOIR GROUP

In the memoir group, there is a constant stream of work and discussion.

Members are working away on everything from memoirs about unexpected childhoods, ongoing encounters with death and complex family memory.

And of course, Tom’s finding ways to move past the blocks and think about story in different ways.

Last week, the challenge was to think about memoir as fiction. What would change? How would you let the story unravel?
