The amazing Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University has a few openings for their summer bootcamp. There's a stipend available for AIR members. (Sign up!) Details below.
Hi all,It's June, time to firm up those summer plans. How about a "vacation" to radio bootcamp? CDS's week-long intensive audio courses, the intro class in July and the more advanced one in August, are filling steadily but have spaces available. Hard to believe but this is the tenth year of our "audio camps for grownups," meaning several hundred people have completed the courses — and a bunch of them are now radio makers of many stripes. Go here for course descriptions and registration (note also the Audio Retreat offered by our good friends from Big Shed):The Association of Independents in Radio (AIR) is offering its members a $100 travel stipend to attend Hearing Is Believing I or Hearing is Believing II: Making it Sing. Five stipends for each course are available, first come, first served. So if you're not an AIR member, the stipend is one of many reasons to join.

NPR legend Alex Chadwick, now working with the environmental reporting project BURN, will be the guest presenter/teacher for the intro course in July, and the faculty for the more advanced August course includes Neenah Ellis (longtime NPR producer, now GM at WYSO) and Big Shed's Shea Shackelford. Think a radio-making course that is both rigorous and laidback with good company, great lunches, and rocking chairs on porches. You come out of either course with a finished piece. We make things as affordable as possible by finding local "friends of CDS" who'll rent you a room for much less than a hotel.Any questions, contact me or my colleague April Walton: firstname.lastname@example.org, 919-660-3670.Cheers,John
