Have a personal story you want to tell, but not sure where to start – or where to finish? This course is a step-by-step guide to bringing your story to life in audio. Experienced journalist and producer Golda Arthur will cover foundational questions you need to know to make it happen: what exactly is your story? How can you make it compelling to anyone besides your mom? Who is your audience anyway?

Over the course of this two session workshop Golda will help you think through how to organize your episodes and build a timeline for launch. She’ll also discuss how you can get support for tasks you can’t do on your own. Get ready to roll up your sleeves – this class will give you a solid foundation to build on.

  • Class is capped at 12 and will meet for two Tuesday sessions at 6pm EST, beginning March 5th. The second session meets Tuesday, March 12th.
  • Registration comes with a free, three-month license for Hindenburg audio editing software
  • You will receive a Zoom link for the workshop the day before it begins.
