Lynn Renee Maxcy is a kickass TV writer, working out of Los Angeles. Her stories are futuristic sci-fi and girl-with-gun stories (and sometimes futuristic girl-with-time-machine-AND-gun stories) and most recently include the international hit adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, alongside work on Covert Affairs, Alphas and a Town called Eureka. We are delighted to welcome Lynn, along with screenwriter and researcher Kirsten Stoddart, for a masterclass exploring the experience of adapting and editing a literary legend, and of the writers’ room for one of TV’s biggest shows.
