After a team of Stanford writing instructors created storyboards for an online class to teach writing skills to high school and college students, they turned to a team of Stanford undergraduates to bring their stories to life as a graphic novel.

Adventures in Writing, a non-credit course, will be available to the public starting Jan. 12 through Stanford Online. The course is aimed primarily at 16- and 17-year olds through age 20.

The course follows "Maya" and "Chris" as they interact with each other and others at a movie theater, baseball game, carnival, community garden and concert hall, and, along the way, learn some essential principles of effective communication.
