Podcasting/Audio Storytelling

This in-person, socially distanced workshop will expose you to the various approaches of audio storytelling, as well as the tools and skills necessary to create your own audio recording, whether a podcast or story for broadcast/internet streaming. Over the course of three days you will learn the elements of effective storytelling, how to write in your own voice, use recording gear, and produce audio into sound-rich stories. By the workshop's conclusion you will know what it takes to put together a story for radio or podcasting, and you will have the audio fundamentals necessary to launch your own program.

If you or your organization are interested in launching a program that explores a fascinating topic or creating a platform for people whose voices need to be heard, we hope you’ll join us for this workshop. 

You'll Walk Away with:

  • Skills to record and edit audio
  • Knowledge of different kinds of podcasting/audio storytelling methods
  • Ideas for starting your own program, distributing and marketing it
  • A certificate of attendance that may be used to provide evidence of professional development
