Celebrating the Written Word

Dream of seeing your story on the big or small screen? Join us for

Page to Screen: Grasping the Brass Ring

February 5 @ 3PM ET (virtual event)

Haven’t we all dreamt of seeing our novels come to life on the big or small screen? Without doubt, it’s the 21st century’s literary “brass ring.” Not only is it thrilling to see your characters walking and talking, but it often means significant additional income and visibility for your next literary triumph.

We are thrilled to welcome four very special guests who’ve been there. Pamela Redmond’s novel YOUNGER inspired the hugely successful series of the same name. And Helen Wan’s novel THE PARTNER TRACK became a Netflix series last summer. Joining them will be TV writer Danielle Roderick who has written for AMC’s THE TERROR and THE RIGHT STUFF on Disney Plus, and Kate Juergens, a creative executive who has worked at Disney, The WB, and NBC. All four will share their experiences shifting work from page to screen, discuss how close (or how far) the finished series were from the original creations, and open up about how it all happened, what goes on in a writer’s room, and what this sort of success has meant for them.

Advance registration is required.


This event will be held virtually via Zoom.

Winter workshops have begun, but there’s still time to join us!
