Prose To Picture is for any writer who has ever wondered how a good book can become a bad movie or vice versa.  It is a four hour workshop specifically designed to introduce writers of other media to the fine art of screenplay.  Using  lecture, film clips, on site exercises, discussion and hand outs, students get the basics of visual storytelling and dramatic structure plus an opportunity to try their hand at adaptation. No one becomes a screenwriter overnight, but Prose To Picture can be an invaluable first step!Participants should bring a brown bag lunch, pen and paper or a laptop.
