Oral History & Radio Documentary


For those interested in bringing your oral histories to the airwaves, this five-day intensive workshop covers the fundamentals of radio storytelling, focusing primarily on the editing process that occurs after you have collected your interviews. Students will learn how to conceptualize and develop a story for radio, as well as how to edit and assemble interview tape and incorporate additional sound, such as music, to really make a story sing. 

Students will have the chance to share their documentaries-in-progress on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM.

This workshop is appropriate for would-be radio producers, podcasters, bloggers, filmmakers, audiophiles, teachers, and writers, among others.

Instructors: Michael Garofalo, Lauren Kelly
