Literary Adaptations: From Bookshelves to Solo Shows
Saturday, May 14
10 AM-12 PM ET
Online event; Open only to Mentees and Mentors in
For some of us, our on-stage career ended with our elementary school debut of “Hot-Crossed Buns.” After which a bookworm-ish knack took over (just us?). Lucky for all of us, writer, producer, and performer, Ana Maria Jomolca, welcomes us back on the stage with the first Writing 360 workshop in May!
In this workshop, we step into the spotlight to create Broadway-worthy re-tellings of our most cherished stories. Delve into the differences between short stories and stage-ready scripts—and how they can coexist. So warm-up those keyboards, and take your places, people! The stage is yours.
