Long Course: Podcasts and Audio Storytelling



Jon Tjhia




It’s true that audio recording – and thus podcasting – is more approachable to many than it’s ever been. Yet the craft of making something that sounds good, holds interest and resonates with listeners is a skill like any other. What different approaches to audio storytelling might suit writers? What possible experiences can you offer a listener? And how might you approach various forms of collaboration?

Over three extended workshop sessions, you’ll be guided through your own audio production – from conceiving and shaping your ideas to developing your listening and practical skills. Using tools you have at hand or within reach, you’ll share ideas, cultivate your inner (audio) editor and grow intimately familiar with a uniquely social, open-ended medium. 

This course will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.
