Intro to Audio Storytelling & Radio Journalism

  • Nashville Public Library 615 Church Street Nasvhille (map)

The explosion of podcasting has reinvigorated radio journalism and opened up creative ways for anyone to create and share audio stories. This is good news for students and future journalists who want to experiment and blend writing, research, storytelling, and music. This class provides a hands-on intro to writing for radio and podcasting, and taps into the radio journalist’s perspective on observing the world and gathering stories.

SLANT workshops are intended for high school students. We meet in StudioNPL on the third floor of the Nashville Public Library. This is a free event open to students from any area, but workshop seating is limited, so please click to RSVP.
