Los Angeles Westside Satellite
Introduction to Book to Film Adaptations
Hosted by Robin Quinn, our Westside Satellite serves writers from the Palisades south to LAX, and those in Culver City, Inglewood, Ladera Heights, Westwood — even Beverly Hills. All interested writers are welcome — IWOSC members or not, published or not, Westside resident or not.
This meeting has passed. We don’t keep all past Satellite meetings here but we’ll do this once in a while so you can get an idea of what they’re about.

She is also the author of the book, Great Adaptations.
Learn the basics of turning your book into a movie. From what makes a good book to adapt to how to find a buyer. And how do you handle it if someone else is doing the adaptation? In addition to the presentation, there will also be a writing exercise or two, as well as a Q&A
Afterwards, we met at Grand Casino Bakery & Cafe, which is nearby across Venice Boulevard in downtown Culver City.
