With the demand for great storytelling higher than ever, content is increasingly being adapted for multiple mediums. Join writers of scripted podcasts for a discussion about the creative process of adapting content -- from adapting existing IP into a podcast to reimaging podcasts for live action entertainment – and hear about their experiences navigating different parts of the entertainment industry. The writers will be joined by Writers Guild of America, East representatives to talk about how writers can protect themselves and their work in the burgeoning audio fiction space.
