I heard phenomenal things about this radio training workshop offered by the folks at Transom in Woods Hole, MA. The deadline for their spring session is Jan 2. If you want to learn radio storytelling with the best of the best, check this out!
For seven weeks, students from all over the US (plus Canada and Australia) came to Woods Hole to immerse themselves in radio. They were led by Rob Rosenthal, with help from all of us at Transom, WCAI, and visiting friends–Ira Glass, John Barth, Kelly McEvers, and many others. They were beginners when they arrived, some with no experience at all, but they all left with completed radio pieces good enough for broadcast on our station and nationally.
They lived and ate together. They worked on their stories until dawn. They actually looked different when they left, filled with new energy. They were a wonderful, coherent, lively group of people and we loved having them here on Cape Cod. Audiences are already benefitting from the stories they told. We hope you'll drop by Transom to read about their experiences, listen to some of their work, and ask them questions.
And, by the way, the application deadline for the Spring Session (April-May 2012) is January 2nd.
