COMING SOON... Reel Books with Joe Milazzo




Writers' Community and Mentorship Program (CAMP)



Writers' CAMP []
is an alternative, non-credit creative writing program for adults that addresses
the needs of writers too challenged by time and/or financial constraints to pursue
a traditional university degree.

CAMP participants work in small cohorts and, at advanced levels, one-one-one with
professional writers to develop craft, an artistic practice and a writer's sensibility.

Specialize in fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction, or explore all these genres.

Both cash payment and work-exchange options are available to cover tuition.

Reel Books with Joe Milazzo

3 Sections: Thursdays, 7:30-9:30 PM
Is it true what people say: that the book is always better than the film? If so,
why? Do filmmakers intentionally set out to misinterpret, mutilate, and otherwise
disgrace beloved works of literature? What choices have to be made in transforming
a book hundreds of pages long into a movie lasting approximately (though usually
less than) 2 hours? How are these choices made, who makes them, and why? More importantly,
how can a good film adaptation increase our enjoyment and appreciation of those 
stories we encounter and love "in print?" In this course, we will watch and read
together, engaging in an open but structured discussion of what it means for literature
to come to life.
