Summer Taster: Adapt your Writing with Fiona Oliver
August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We’ll take a look at the different traditional formats, including novel, short story, radio, television, film, digital and musical, and an overview of the considerations when adapting work for the different formats and the forms involved. We’ll then look at some examples of adapted work, and spend some time trying our hand at adaptation. This taster is for complete beginners at adaptation so it doesn’t matter whether you’ve never written a story, or if you’ve already written a novel. If you want to work on your own pieces bring them along, otherwise you’ll be given examples to work with.
