J276 – Audio on Assignment

Audio on Assignment: Creativity often springs from constraint, and the world of journalism is full of constraint, like getting an assignment from an editor that isn’t something you’d typically feel is in your wheel-house. In this course, we will learn how to take an assigned story and weave an audio narrative. To do that we will learn how to be creative, resourceful and rigorous in pursuing a wide range of stories, of the sort students could be expected to do as public radio journalists.  Students in this class will report early and often, building on their existing audio journalism skills and honing their ability tell mid-length (5-12 minute) audio journalism stories well. Guest-speakers will include award-winning audio journalists and editors, who will share tips for making audio stories memorable and impactful.
