Novelist and screenwriter conducts Q&A ...
Our Year 10 students were captivated by novelist and screenwriter, David Nicholls who spoke for an hour about his latest novel, 'Sweet Sorrow', his inspirations and influences, and the intriguing process of converting a book into a film script.
David's novels 'Starter for Ten' and 'One Day' have already been made into successful movies, and he is currently working on the film script for 'Sweet Sorrow' As the title suggests, it is a modern day 'Romeo and Juliet', a play that our Year 10s have been studying recently.
Students posed questions to David about the inspiration for his characters, the structural choices he made in the novel, its themes and preoccupations, and his own reading interests.
It was an incredible insight into the art and craft of writing - thank you, David!
