Why are some TV adaptations well received whilst others are less so? How might you go about adapting your carefully selected novel?

In this adaptation crash course, we will look at some examples of novel to TV adaptations, comparing their ‘success’ to learn what makes a good adaptation and what makes fans cringe. We’ll also explore what to consider when selecting a novel and what changes or adaptations you may implement.

Dates: Tuesday 12th &  Tuesday 19th January
