Learn to Start Your Own Podcast at Wistariahurst
HOLYOKE — On Monday, April 11 at 6 p.m., Stevie Converse will be at Wistariahurst to teach workshop participants how to start their own podcasts.
Audio pieces and podcasts are increasingly becoming a popular way to connect with personal narratives and stories from the past. At this workshop, participants will learn the basics of creating compelling audio stories. Skills covered will include recording, editing, soundscapes, tips for interviews, and some ideas for distributing finished pieces. During the workshop, the group will have the chance to test out their skills by creating a short podcast together.
Converse was co-producer and co-host of the Free Press podcast “Media Minutes” for four years (200 episodes). She has taught podcasting workshops in Boston and New York. Her latest project is a multi-media story of her recent journey to Greece in search of her grandfather’s grave.
This podcasting workshop is the fifth event in the “Getting to the Story” workshop series taking place at Wistariahurst on Monday evenings. The workshop fee is $7, or $5 for Wistariahurst members. Space is limited, and participants are encouraged to reserve their place ahead of time by visiting www.wistariahurst.org. No prior experience is necessary.
