Writers Notes

Writers wishing to do adaptations for Sound of Liberty should submit a treatment with the following information:

  1. Character list - A list of the major and minor characters. [extras, and one-liners need not be included]
  2. Story arc - A concise [5-ish pages] synopsis of the plot of the story, arranged in acts, and scenes. This is a proposal, so you will have some freedom to re-arrange as you write. Mostly we are looking for where are the "beats" and what elements you plan to keep in, and what you are planning on omitting.
  3. Philosophical spine - What idea is the original writer trying to get across and how are you going to express this dramatically?

If you are a writer not already in communication with a member of ARTC, please contact us to indicate interest and with any questions.
