Writing a Radio Play

11th January 2010 by Maura McHugh

The Irish Writers Centre has announced its Weekend Courses for the Spring.

Our members might be interested in “Writing a Radio Play“, which will be taught by John Maher, and will take place on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th March from 10.30am-4.30pm.

This two-day course will look at the format, style and content of the radio play. We will explore how to build a radio play by focusing on background themes, narrative framework and characters. We will listen to examples and undertake analysis of radio scripts. The course will include practical writing tasks, including dialogue drills and exercises.

The objective of the course will be to enable writers to work towards completing their own radio play. Although not essential, participants are free to bring along work in progress.

The course costs €140, and can be paid for online.
