Have you ever wished you had a way to capture a story that’s important to you? Are there people in your family whose memories you’d like to preserve?

Would you just like to have the skills to create great sounding audio with simple tools that you already have access to? 

If the answer to any of those is yes, CMN has a course for you. 

Starting on November 11, 2019, award-winning multimedia program innovator Meg Lindholm — who has taught at Duke University and worked for NPR — will be leading a six-week course designed for anyone interested in learning the art and craft of great audio storytelling.

Perhaps you’re an aspiring podcaster, radio reporter or family historian. Whatever your audio storytelling goal, this class is for you. You’ll learn effective recording and interviewing techniques, how to use simple editing software and guidelines to help you create your story.

You’ll also have fun listening to great stories and learning tips from some of the masters of the craft, like Ira Glass. This class is conducted like a workshop which means you’ll get lots of helpful feedback from the instructor who has over twenty years of audio storytelling experience.

This six-week course is open for enrollment right now. Get all the details and save your spot in the session right here
