The Transom Audio Narrative Short Course is a traveling workshop that will return to Interlochen College for Creative Arts for a second year in 2014. This workshop provides participants not just an introduction to the basics, but it delves intensely into some advanced elements of radio story planning, structure and writing, fieldwork and digital audio editing. All participants in the program will produce a four minute profile of a creative resident of northern Michigan. Works completed during the workshop will be considered for airing on Interlochen Public Radio. Ideal for beginning producers, experienced podcasters, and anyone already familiar with digital audio editing and fieldwork, this workshop is perfect for those who have an interest in producing sound-rich stories with a strong narrative. While previous experience in radio storytelling or journalism isn't required, it is preferred. Workshop participants should be creative, dedicated storytellers or journalists with a strong set of entry-level skills. In order to participate, those interested must undergo a pre-screening process and be invited to register.

To apply, please email college@interlochen.org with a brief paragraph about your interest in the workshop, your background and skills, and a link (or attachment) to an mp3 or other audio recording you have produced. Review of applicants will begin in early January and the deadline for pre-screening is April 1. All applicants will be notified in mid April regarding their admissions status and those invited into the program will receive a direct link to complete their workshop registration online. Spots in the program will be limited and will only be available to invited participants on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Transom Audio Narrative Short Course at Interlochen is a collaboration between Transom.org, Interlochen College of Creative Arts and Interlochen Public Radio (IPR). Rob Rosenthal is the lead instructor. Rob will be assisted by IPR’s News Director, Peter Payette.
