Notes: "Writers: The Group".
The intro says:
that Scraps was the result of a seminar that Steven Grant wanted to teach. Steven felt that most seminars at (comic?) conventions were too theoritical. "I've lived in a profession beset by time pressures, space limitations, editorial restrictions, thwarted ideas, and punishing hours. And it dawned on me that no one was being prepared for that version of the comics profession." So he decided on an experiment. "Randy Stradley and Dark Horse were good enough to involved themselves, agreeing to publish the results, good or bad. The San Diego Convention agreed to make it a part of the 1991 program."
"The idea was this: take twenty people and isolate them in a room for six hours," and for them "to have a comics script written by the time they came out."
Twenty-four people showed up, "we started at eight. By the time two in the morning rolled around, twelve hardy spirits remained." "I stuck my nose in where necessary; let them go their own way where possible."
The survivors of the group were "William C. Herrel, Douglas Miers, Eric Dinehart, LaDonne Lynn, Matt Hammond, Doselle Young, Jeff Camp, John Clapp, Jason A. Turner, Steve Kaiser, Mike Kerr, and Janine Goldfarb."
