Storytelling with D.V. Bishop: Exploring Intellectual Property and Different Mediums

Pen to Print bring you this event in partnership with The Wilbur and Niso Smith Foundation

What different forms of writing are there?

Novels, Screenplays, Comics, Radio Drama….

What are the different skills you need for writing each of them?

What are the same skills?

Long-running brands often look for writers to help their worlds continue to grow and allow their characters to continue to have adventures. Working with another writer’s, or brand’s, intellectual property opens up a whole host of varied professional opportunities for writers.

In conversation with Foundation Manager, Georgina Brown, David Bishop will discuss the pros and cons of these different storytelling mediums and explore the similarities and differences of working in your own world versus someone else’s.
