SW | Writing For Radio (workshop) - Thursday 28 Sept
TUTOR: LIZ ALLARD WITH ALISON MacLEOD
In this workshop BBC radio producer Liz Allard will explore the craft of writing stories for radio and other aural outlets, looking at the key differences and challenges of writing for a listening medium. Liz will lead a series of exercises focusing on openings, with practical tips to help you craft your idea into stories to enthral listeners (as opposed to readers), plenty of time for personal feedback, and suggestions on routes to getting your work heard. Alison MacLeod, who has written extensively for radio, will give a writer’s perspective on the topic, as well as her tips on writing great stories which work in different contexts.
Liz Allard has been producing short stories for Radio 4 and Radio 3 for fifteen years. She has produced many editions of Book of the Week, Book at Bedtime, and the BBC National Short Story Award. Alison MacLeod is a novelist, short story writer and Professor of Contemporary Fiction at the University of Chichester.
This workshop is aimed at those with some prior creative writing experience, in any format. Participants are encouraged to familiarise themselves with Radio 4’s short story output before the workshop. Maximum 15 participants.
