Ever wanted to write a radio play? John Lombard did, so with the help of Scissors Paper Pen he made one – 'The Bell Coffin' – that was later picked up by Radio National. Now he wants to help you make your own. After exploring the features of radio plays and story narratives, this workshop will develop a radio play through improv that will later be played on Scissors Paper Pen's own radio show.
How to apply: Applicants are asked to submit a few sentences on what piques their interest about radio plays and any experience they have with them, be it writing them obsessively, listening to them occasionally or pure curiosity. Email applications to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Words on the Wireless' in the subject line.
Applications close: March 14 2015.
