In this hands-on workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of audio storytelling, including how to identify and collect the elements of a compelling story. Students will learn how to report with digital recorders and how to edit audio. At the end of the five days, students will have produced a short, sound-rich audio piece and will have a greater appreciation of how to approach audio storytelling. Students will also have the opportunity to discuss future project ideas with the instructor.
