A lot of people requested more time to complete their Transom Story Workshop application for the fall, so we've extended the deadline to: 11:59pm EST, June 15, 2012.
As you may already know, the Transom Story Workshop is an eight week training for beginning radio producers in Woods Hole, MA. Our next session is scheduled for October 1 – November 30, 2012. The class is taught by radio teaching legend, Rob Rosenthal along with lots of amazing guests. For this past Workshop some of our guests included: Transom Tool guy Jeff Towne, This American Life’s, Hillary Frank and Jonathan Menjivar, producer Scott Carrier, David Krasnow of Studio 360, Kitchen Sister Nikki Silva, independent producer Ari Daniel Shapiro, and John Barth of PRX. You'll get a piece edited by Jay Allison, vocal coaching from Viki Merrick, and support from the whole Transom team.
Participants stay in wonderful old Cape Cod houses, with some rooms right on the water. There are a couple of group meals each week, cooked by a famous local sea cook. It's fun. An amazing radio camp. You can check Transom for reports from students who've attended, many of whom are now working in public media.
Students leave the Workshop with a portfolio of work, their own copy of Hindenburg editing software, a PRX membership, and AIR members who are accepted into the Workshop will receive a travel stipend.
