Paranormal Fiction Workshop with Nova Ren Suma

Paranormal Fiction Workshop with Nova Ren Suma ON ZOOM, Saturday, Oct. 23, 10 am to 12 noon $50 Consider the kind of story that spreads and gets under the skin, a tale that leaves the listener rapt and wanting to believe… A good ghost story can make your heart pound and have you questioning what’s real. This workshop will begin with a craft lecture on what all writers can gain from ghost stories, such as atmosphere and mood, suspense and mystery, tension and the suspension of disbelief. Then we’ll move into a generative writing workshop meant to spark new ideas for paranormal and supernatural fiction. Come ready to write during our session and, perhaps, bravely share your frightening creation.

Adapting Novels for TV and Film with Alana Sanko

Adapting Novels for TV and Film with Alana Sanko Saturday, Nov. 13, Noon to 4 p.m. $55 If you’ve ever read a book and were convinced it would make an incredible movie or written a novel yourself and wondered if it could be a television series, then this one-day course is for you. Join us as we explore the fundamentals of adaptation. We will examine how various well-known novels have been adapted (successfully and unsuccessfully) for television and film and discuss how to identify strong potential material. Topics will include: determining the proper format, an overview on story structure, telling stories in prose vs. scripted, genre, theme, lead and supporting characters, dialogue, how to acquire the rights to material, navigating the entertainment industry, and much, much more. We will also do some exercises in class. Come with your ideas and hopefully leave with your questions answered.
