Read the selection of pieces from a collection of very short stories (Microfiction, edited by Jerome Stern), and chose one story to translate into a 2-4 page visual sequence. Don’t focus on accommodating every line of text. Instead, try to use as little narration as possible and place a stronger emphasis on finding visual ways of recreating the same effects the writer achieved with literary conventions, such as the metaphor. A comparison of Paul Auster’s City of Glass and David Mazzucchelli’s adaptation is a great example of this being done well.
