A one-day workshop for authors and content creators wanting their work to be noticed.
A screen producer, literary agent and two broadcasters will explain what they look for in choosing books to adapt for film, TV and online productions.
A screen industry specialist and a graphic designer will then guide the workshop participants on how to prepare a pitch to appeal to screen producers.
Each guest speaker will work with a small group advising how to develop pitch material.
Guest speakers include Angie Fielder, Aquarius Films (Lion), Sally Riley, ABC TV, Karen Radzyner, SBS TV and Screen NSW’s Amplifier and Pippa Masson from Curtis Brown.
