Adam Johnson and Tom Kealey, two instructors of Stanford Creative Writing Program , orchestrated the production of a graphic novel called Shake Girl with their students. Shake Girl is a massive collaborative project between fifteen students and the instructors over the course of Winter quarter(2008).
"The Stanford Graphic Novel Project independently published several hundred copies of Shake Girl that we are using to create awareness about the issues of violence against women, and more specifically, the phenomenon of acid attacks in Cambodia. For these same reasons, we are publishing Shake Girl for free on the web."
"In retrospect it seems a little miraculous that the fourteen students of the Stanford Graphic Novel Project wrote, illustrated, and designed Shake Girl in six weeks time. But here, we seem to hold the evidence in our hands.
