dc.description.abstractI’ve been involved in creative writing since I was ten. Before I came to K, however, most of my work was based on my own personal exploration of the field. Much of my coursework outside of the Biology department has been in creative writing courses, many of which have taken me in directions I wouldn’t have otherwise explored. When I was enrolled in Playwriting my sophomore year, one of the first things I came to learn was that writers who work in prose often fail in their attempts to transition to playwriting. Furthermore, I’ve always been intrigued by the notion of why “the book was better” as far as many film adaptations are concerned. The purpose of my SIP was to experience the process of adaptation firsthand. After developing an original idea, I attempted to convey it in three different media (stage play, short story, and screenplay), exploring the differences associated with each form.en
