This workshop introduces writers to the fundamentals of audio storytelling and audio production. Participants will learn how to write for and connect with listeners as well as use sonic strategies including voice, silence, sound effects, and music to craft compelling and powerful audio stories. Over the course of two sessions, participants will transform an existing written story (which should be completed prior to the first session) into a sonically rich audio story.
