San Fernando (Zoom): Turn Your Novel Into a Screen Play

May 7, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

May 7th – Anat Golan Wenick

Turn Your Novel Into a Screen Play



The San Fernando Valley Branch of the California Writers Club is excited to feature our own board member and treasurer Anat Golan-Wenick as the featured speaker on May 7 at 1:00 pm via Zoom with a presentation titled “Turn Your Novel Into a Screen Play.”

Wenick notes, “The diversified writer is the more sought-after writer. The diversified writer also has more money generating venues. Join us to find out what you need to know when adapting the written word to the screen.

“With the wealth of streaming services and TV channels, the rise of podcasts, and online sites dedicated to specific film genres, there is an increased demand for material. There is no reason why that next blockbuster, or the next best adapted screenplay Oscar or Emmy can’t comefrom something you have written. And while you may not wish to engage in turning your own narrative into a screenplay, you may want to know a thing or two about what will happen if someone else is hired to do so.

“In this upcoming presentation, we will touch on basic rules one should follow when adapting a piece to the screen, including the do’s and don’ts. The presentation will also touch on how you can make your own narrative writing more appealing to producers.”
