Ever thought of turning one of your screenplays into a novel? Or simply working in the novel form? In this one time 3 hour workshop for screenwriters who love novels (and novelists who love movies), discover how the two forms diverge and intersect and why a novel is an option worth considering. You’ll discover ways to make your story come alive and how to choose a point of view. You’ll also learn the basics of submitting your finished work for publication. There will be writing exercises as well as the opportunity to have the instructor read and comment on your pieces, privately or in class.
About the Instructor: Laurie Viera Rigler is a best-selling novelist and nonfiction author whose novels and short fiction have been translated into four languages. Having spent several years writing her first novel and enduring “helpful” warnings about how aspiring novelists were more likely to win the lottery than ever get published, Laurie is passionate about being of service to authors and helping them realize their dreams. She channels that passion into her work as an independent book editor and writing coach and is thrilled about teaching at Vroman’s again. Having re-secured the film and TV rights to her Jane Austen Addict series of novels, Laurie has also adapted three of her novels into a TV pilot and show bible, which has resulted in partnerships with award-winning producers. The process of bringing these works to the screen continues to unfold. If you have any advance questions about her classes, please feel free to get in touch via her sites, janeaustenaddict.com or freelancebookeditor.com.
