Writing for Podcasts with Kylie Stevenson

Have you always wondered where to start with creating your own podcast?

This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in non-fiction audio storytelling. It will give you the tools to conjure and craft a podcast, from generating and honing your idea right through to pitching what you produce. There will be a focus on storytelling, including capturing narrative voice, developing and editing your script, and how to work tension, stakes and suspense into your story. The workshop will also cover interviewing techniques, how to weave research into your narrative, and the ethical and legal considerations of telling true stories.
