Screenwriting: Adapting Novels into Screenplays

Great books make great films! Discover the joy and the challenges of adapting a novel into a script for the movies or a Limited Television series. This workshop will offer the basics of writing a screenplay and explore how to bring unforgettable characters and sizzling plots to the
screen. Begin always with a compelling story; then allow that story to speak through discipline, resilient spirit, and passion. For all levels.

Awarded the Al Smith Fellowship for “Artistic achievement as a screenwriter and/or playwright”, Margaret Price has written award-winning scripts for both film and television. Two scripts came to light as festival-winning produced films. Most recently, Price’s Belle Brezing (novel/screenplay) has been optioned by L.A. producers to pitch as either a feature film or television series. Price has four published novels.

Please note: Since our Fall catalog was printed, Kentucky’s number of  COVID-19 cases has grown exponentially. Therefore the Center decided to start all early-to-mid September classes online for the safety and health of our community. Screenwriting: Adapting Novels into Screenplays will meet online via Zoom.
