Pen to Print

New for 2021 The Pen to Print Audio Play Competition in partnership with Alternative Stories is now open for entries.

The workshop will offer an overview of writing for audio drama looking at techniques, dialogue, writing sound and stage directions and offering advice on working with actors, sound designers and musicians to bring your story to life.

We’ll look at the different types of audio drama including episodic, and serial dramas and radio plays.

We’ll include practical exercises, some clips from actual Alternative Stories Productions as well as insight from professional voice actors about what they like to see from audio drama scripts.

We’ll conclude with a section on getting your script produced and how to disseminate it through podcasting. This section will also cover pitching your drama to radio and production companies.
