About Haley


Bio

Hello, my name is Haley. I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and a Master of Fine Arts in Comics. I have always loved reading and writing as a child and when I was in undergrad I found the literature classes to be the most engaging. I am a huge fan of character driven fantasy stories and take a particular interest in the comic and manga industry. Some of my favorite titles being Pumpkinheads, One Piece, and Chihayafuru.

Hello, my name is Haley. I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and a Master of Fine Arts in Comics. I have always loved reading and writing as a child and when I was in undergrad I found the literature classes to be the most engaging. I am a huge fan of character driven fantasy stories and take a particular interest in the comic and manga industry. Some of my favorite titles being Pumpkinheads, One Piece, and Chihayafuru.

Even out of school I enjoy learning from, and studying the stories that I engage with. Whether it be movies, TV, video games, or literature. I even cohost on a podcast where we love talking about the different Japanese manga series that we read. Studying anything from long form series, short stories, stand-alone novels, poems, and graphic novels, my passion for stories has only grown. It is that passion that I love sharing with my students.

I remember going through English classes in Middle and High School. Getting the right grades but not necessarily understanding what the instructor was looking for. In undergrad, however, I was taught how to understand a novel, to read in between the lines on the page to see the heart of the text. It was these skills that served me well when studying and working with members of my cohort to write scripts and draft comic pages during my MFA program. Learning how to pick up a text, being able to thoroughly analyze, and discuss it has helped my own writing tremendously; and it is these skills I want to share with you.

The subjects I would be most able to help in are:
- Creative Writing and Script Writing (strengthening plot, characterization, and consistency.)
- Reading (looking at a text for more than surface value information.)
- Analytical/Essay Papers (crafting stronger thesis and topic sentences, as well as strengthening the content of the paper as a whole.)

I've taken art classes all throughout my educational career and have picked up some tips and tricks to help work on style and skills. Having graduated with a Master of Fine Arts

Drawing

I have spent over the last four years studying and crafting comics from scripts and thumbnails to fully rendered pages. I am proficient in a variety of both digital and traditional tools, switching between brushes, dip pens, and ClipStudio for my own work. Having studied these topics in great detail, I understand page and panel composition, as well as character design, often being asked to be an extra set of eyes for those I met during my MFA program.
