Screenwriting: Adapting Novels into Screenplays – Winter 2022

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.
