Everyone has a story to tell, especially now. Join audio producer and editor Nora Boydell in this unique, 3-day intensive workshop, "Personal Podcasting” and learn the very basics of writing for audio and crafting a story in sound. You will work on a short piece of personal writing, adapt it for audio, record it in your own voice, and end with a finished memoir-style audio story.
Students are encouraged to craft narratives about their pandemic experiences, but all topics are welcome and fit for exploration in this course. This class is ideal for those interested in podcasts, radio, creative writing, performance, storytelling, or public speaking. It’s also great for those who want a new way to explore their voice, express themselves, or reflect on this strange time in the world.Podcasting Online Meetings:
