Book to Film, led by acclaimed Wisconsin author Sara Dahmen, this is a fast-moving ninety-minute workshop with everything you need to know and didn't know you needed to know about taking your book to film. These days, it has never been more possible than now, when creators and streaming media is hungry for original work. Learn all about the steps, processes, and hurtles to get your novel into the media, with hands-on interactive tasks and rolling Q&A so you can collect everything you want to know about this aspect of our industry.
Author and teacher Joanne Nelson will lead the workshop session - Crafting Story: The Art of Close Attention. This interactive session focuses on exercises and discussion designed to re-energize rich moments of memory, create vivid sensory details, and structure narrative flow in compelling ways. We will practice paying close attention and learn how increased awareness of the present can help us craft our stories that must be told. Bring plenty of paper or a laptop, and a desire to spend time learning, laughing, and, of course, writing! wakeupthewriterwithin.com
