Multigenre Workshop: Adaptations

We focus on works of prose, both fiction and nonfiction, published and original. From these texts, we determine what can be skillfully dramatized and what should remain as language. We ask: where should dialog begin, how can it be maintained or made most effective, and when should it be concluded? We identify and become well-acquainted with the elements and demands that go into dramatic writing, and how it differs from narrative prose.
