Jacqueline Woodson has recently adapted her award-winning book LOCOMOTION for the Kennedy Center stage (the show premieres on October 23rd). In a piece she wrote for The Huffington Post, she talks about the inspiration for the story and how she adapted it for the stage.
Earlier this summer, I worked on a film “Capture the Flag,” which was the screen adaptation of a novel by Rebecca Chace and Chace was one of the writers adapting for the screen.
As a writer, do you think about the stage or screen adaptations of your work when writing the book? How do you approach the writing if you are adapting for a different medium?
