Adapting Your Work for Stage/Screen

We have brought our stories to the page. Now… how do we bring it to the stage? The big screen? Our workshop will explore how fiction makes the leap to film/television and find ways to adapt our own material for new mediums. By taking an in-depth look at previously adapted pieces and comparing the source material with their evolutionary counterparts, we will discuss what makes its way onto film and what should remain on the page—and how.

The Art and Craft of Oral Storytelling

In this workshop, we'll explore the power and potential uses--both for creative writing and day-to-day communication--of storytelling. Through a series of exercises, attendees will learn techniques and tools to develop and deliver a true story from their lives. 

We'll touch on how to locate promising stories, how to structure them, and how to deliver them (without memorization) with confidence. Attendees will leave the workshop with the tools and know-how to continue to refine their stories.
