Lisette’s DC PodFest Session
Title: Audio Drama Crash Course: Giving Voice to Fiction
This workshop will focus on the practical application of writing for the ear and sound design for fiction podcasts. Lisette will cover basic guidelines when writing, acting, recording, and editing, as well as free and low-cost resources to keep in mind when creating a fiction podcast or audio drama.
Lisette will demonstrate how immersing yourself in the unique craft of audio can enhance the story you wish to share with the world. Volunteers will be brought up to participate in the editing of a short, pre-recorded scene.
What to bring with you: Something to take notes; option to bring your work-in-progress (script/outlines/clips) as part of audience participation and discussion.
