Description:
Have you ever wanted to adapt your novel or memoir to a screenplay? Maybe somebody told you your short story would make a great musical, or wants to option your article for a TV series, or your agent is asking you to get your book "smaller" for a TV pilot, or your book just sold to a film studio. No matter what kind of writer you are, it is important to understand how prose and dramatic narrative are two different animals. This class will equip you for adaptation, whether you want to take a crack at writing that screenplay of your book yourself, or decide it's best to leave it to the pros. Either way, knowledge is power --- especially before you sign your next contract! Bring a notebook, pen and/or your charged laptop. There will be a short lecture to start, then all workshop with readings and exercises designed to immerse you immediately in dramatic form.   This workshop meets from 10am-3pm on Saturday,  April 27, 2019, with a half-hour lunch break between 12:30 and 1pm. You may wish to bring your lunch, or there are fast-food restaurants close by. Cost: $75 early bird (deadline April 17, 2019), $85 general admission.  To pay by check instead of via Eventbrite, mail your check to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806.
