Suzanne Nugent - The Path to Production: Adapting Your Novel for Screen

  • February 08, 2024
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM



In this session, we'll talk about how to navigate your novel’s path to production, identify key scenes in your script that make it marketable as a film or TV series, and ways to adapt your story for screen with integrity. Whether you’re inspired to write an adaptation yourself or want to sell rights to your book, learning about screenwriting and the development process is an empowering way to maintain your narrative voice throughout an adaptation.

Suzanne Nugent is a bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter. She was shortlisted for the Academy Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting and has received accolades from the Denver Film Festival and the San Francisco Writers Conference. She hosts the biweekly podcast Character Development, where innovators, authors, and artists talk about creative process and real-life character arcs. Through Adaptation Coaching, Suzanne empowers fellow authors to adapt their novels for screen with integrity. 

Suzanne will accept manuscripts for critique on a first come basis. Please see the Manuscript scroll down on our website for more information
