Join my online classroom and write a complete audio podcast drama over five weekly sessions. These live, interactive online classes will introduce you to the industry of audio drama, and allow you to learn the skills necessary to write drama for radio and podcasts.
We will look at the new opportunities in this growing industry and explore how to structure podcast drama, how to sustain tension in plot, how to build dramatic audio characters and how to write convincing dialogue. We will consider the state of the market now, and what commissioners are looking for from writers.
Each week members of the group will share their writing-in-progress, and by the end of the five weeks you will have a complete podcast drama idea, and a plan for what to do with it next.
Prior to the class you will be sent a listening list of podcast dramas to inspire and educate you about the form. We will discuss and learn from these dramas in the class.
No prior writing experience or knowledge of audio or podcast drama is necessary.
Dates: Thursday 7-9pm, starting 21 March, then 28 March, 4 April , 11 April and 18 April 2024
