There has never been a better time to get involved in audio work. From podcasts to radio to paid services such as Amazon’s Audible platform, producers are searching for more content to meet demand from their listeners.
In this series we’ll take writers through some of the different types of audio from drama to fiction and poetry made specifically for listening audiences. We’ll look at the writing techniques you’ll need to learn in order to flourish in these areas and we’ll guide you through the opportunities for working in audio. Working alongside industry professionals including actors and writers with extensive audio experience our workshops will inform and entertain while hopefully inspiring attendees to have a go at getting into the world of audio.
