Today, Monday 15th March

The National Centre for Writing will be discussing how they share stories through web, podcast, social channels, print and marketing. Get inspired! This will be followed by lives workshop from a dynamic duo from MDX, Film maker David Cottis, followed by Playwright James Kenworth:

Playwright and MDX Narrative Lecturer James Kenworth (The Newham Plays) talks about his acclaimed adaptations of Animal Farm and Alice in Wonderland, arguing that these plays were not straightforward stage adaptations of literary classics, but radical re-imaginings of the original source material, and new plays in their own right. He explores the notion of literary adaptation as being similar to a DJ remix or re-edit; appropriating and changing other materials to create something new.
