We don't just want to hear from you. We want others to hear from you as well!
Having met so many of you already in such a short space of time, and having learned about what you're doing in the fields of comics and education, we thought we'd make you an offer you just couldn't refuse.
If you happen to be doing work you'd like to share with visitors to our site, have insights about recent developments in the use of visual narrative in the classroom, or just feel strongly about the importance of comics in education, we'd be interested in having you write a guest blog for us.
We're open to lots of creative and insightful ideas, and would love to feature the work of those who have a particular passion for these disciplines. Perhaps you have great ideas about using the works of a particular graphic novelist in your classroom. Maybe your students have drawn and written comics that really showcase the power of teaching them the visual. Perhaps you've read a comic or graphic novel in the past year that you feel has been undervalued in terms of its pedagogical utility.
Whatever it is, we want to hear from you.
Not only that, but we want others to as well.
So send us a quick note by using our Contact Form. You can either send it to the one that goes to Comics in Education or the one that goes directly to me. You might want to do both, because I've set the electronic forms to thank you as though from a couple of familiar Marvel characters.
Seriously, it's kind of adorable.
