Have you ever fancied writing an audio drama or podcast? Learn about the processes of writing specifically for soundwaves with Ben Cottam.

This workshop will look at ways of telling stories without visual aid, explore how to use soundscape as a tool, discuss qualities unique to radio and suggest ways of getting started in this exciting medium.

Ben Cottam is a prolific writer of audio dramas, sitcoms and podcasts for the BBC and Audible, as well as a presenter and producer of radio features and documentaries.

Sessions are free to book. Priority booking for students and staff until 15 October; open to all thereafter. Please email to register your interest.
