YWW Portland: Writing For Radio with Ben Coleman
September 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Writing For Radio with Ben Coleman
There’s more to writing for radio than banging a script together and finding a microphone (although having a microphone helps). First, you have to pitch a bunch of ideas, workshop the good ones with other writers, and then craft a script that suits both your actors and the audience they’re performing to. Veteran Live Wire Radio sketch writer Ben Coleman will walk you through each part of the creative process, concluding with a performance of a sketch put together by the group over the course of the hour.
