Storytelling with Sound: Podcasting for Beginners

Monday 16 November | 5.30pm | The Basement at HOTA, Home of the Arts

For those unfamiliar, podcasts have been described as “Netflix for your ears”. Podcasting is one of the fastest-growing storytelling formats and the medium offers writers, creators and businesses exciting ways to reach new audiences. But more than that, it’s a way to tell rich, evocative stories that haunt, inspire and move listeners long after they take out their headphones.

Whether you’re planning to launch a true-crime podcast, host an in-conversation audio series or dive deeply into your family story, this workshop will cover the basics of audio storytelling. You’ll learn about equipment and set-up, how to record and interview for sound and how to script, edit and publish. If you’re new to audio, don’t let that scare you; beginners can get started quickly and you can make excellent content straight from your phone. By the end of the session, you’ll have the information and, we hope, the courage you need to get started.

The workshop facilitator, Caroline Graham, is the co-writer and co-producer of Lost in Larrimah, which won a Walkley Award and has been optioned by HBO for a potential TV series, and has consulted on the podcasts Predator and Media Secrets. She is also the author of Writing Feature Stories: How to research and write articles—from listicles to longform. She teaches journalism and creative writing at Bond University.
