‘Write Now!’ Calls it Quits
Write Now!, the how-to magazine for aspiring comic book writers, will be canceled after its 20th issue, out in February. TwoMorrows posted the news on their website this week.
Publisher John Morrow noted, “I’ve got to say, I’m really sorry to see it go; Danny Fingeroth has been absolutely professional and delightful to work with on it, and always managed to teach me (and his readers, based on the mail we get) something new about the intricacies of writing for comic books and related fields.”
“Producing Write Now! for TwoMorrows has been one of the highlights of my career,” said editor Danny Fingeroth in a press release. “The art and craft of writing comics is something that is often neglected due to the higher visibility of comics art. Write Now gave me the chance to share what I’ve learned about writing over the years with people who are passionate about expanding their writing knowledge and skills. I got to meet and speak with many great creators of all eras during the magazine’s run, getting them to speak about what they do in ways that had seldom been touched on before. And, of course, working with the great John Morrow the rest of the TwoMorrows crew was always a pleasure. I look forward to continuing my relationship with this important publishing entity.”
The final issue will focus on The Spirit and will include interviews with producers Michael Uslan and FJ DeSanto in addition to an extensive interview with Colleen Doran, writer Alex Grecian discussing how to get a pitch green-lighted, plus a bevy of script and art examples from a wide range of projects. The magazine, which includes yours truly as its Managing Editor, has also seen a Best Of volume and collaborated with sister publication Draw! on How To Create Comics, From Script To Print book and DVD combination.
Subscribers will be receiving information shortly regarding the resolution of any prepaid issues beyond #20, with the option of receiving either a refund, or applying their balance toward another TwoMorrows book or magazine.
