New Audio Workshop Opportunity:

By Application. Read Details below.

Philly Frequencies: Stories in Sound is a special 8-week workshop on audio storytelling as part of the Philadelphia Stories RETROSPECTIVE relaunch, a “look back” to the rich cultural stories that compose Philadelphia. Now, we look forward with #PhillyStories that are as unique as the city itself.

Over 8 weeks, participants will work individually or in pairs to create a 5 minute audio story that focuses on a specific profile of a person, place, movement or community in Philadelphia. Additionally, selected participants will receive a 1-year PhillyCAM membership, including technical training and access to audio equipment, as a way to continue producer support.

Each story will be a distinct local story that reflects the here and now of our city, from a perspective not widely heard. PhillyCAM will guide and support participants through the development of their storytelling, interviews, writing, and audio production.

This workshop is open to the public, and selection will be made by a small review committee. Priority will be given to applicants who have a long term interest in developing and building their audio and radio skills. All completed stories will air on WPPM FM in a special radio broadcast and be available for online distribution.

Topics to be covered:

  • Story Development
  • Writing for radio
  • Research
  • Interviewing
  • Pitching your story
  • Audio recording and editing
  • Distribution and promotion 


DATES: Mondays, Jan 24 through March 14, 2021, beginning at 6:30-8:30 PM.

*Additional Saturday workshops to be scheduled for technical training as needed.

*Participants will be expected to spend about  2-3 hours/week outside of class working on their final story.
