Erik Deckers on Adapting Stories for Stage and Radio Plays

Writing a scene for a book and creating a scene in a play are two drastically different experiences. However, the writing has more in common than you might think. Both contain traditional story elements, such as plot, character development, and dialogue.  The way each of these elements are executed is different though. Erik Deckers, author and president of Pro Blog Service, shares his experience in adapting a story for a stage or radio play. He wrote his first radio play because of a contest, but there are other opportunities to adapt stories. This experience inspired him to start writing other radio shows and plays. Creating a story with only dialogue has its own challenges, but Deckers found it to be easier in many ways since radio shows and plays are auditory experiences. Listen to Deckers in the clip below to learn more about how to write for the stage and radio.
