Open Your Ears: Introduction to Audio Storytelling with Galen Beebe

What's the best way to learn about audio? By listening!

Join a group listening session where you'll discuss a diverse selection of pieces to uncover the fundamental elements of audio storytelling. We’ll break down the four essentials of a great story, the basics of writing for the ear, and the details that make an audio narrative ear-grippingly good. You'll walk away with a newfound appreciation for the work that goes into constructing these narratives, as well as practical approaches for creating your own podcast or audio project.

We recommend this workshop for beginners - no audio experience is required to attend.



Galen Beebe is a Boston-based freelance writer and multimedia artist. She is the managing editor of Ministry of Ideas, a podcast about the ideas that shape our world; an editor at the Bello Collective, an online publication of podcast criticism; and the co-founder of Etc. Gallery, a publisher of collaborative narrative experiments. Her work has been appeared in the Atlantic, Full Stop, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.


The cost of this two-hour workshop is $50 for non-members and $40 for members of the Podcast Garage or members of the Harvard Ed Portal (i.e. any Allston-Brighton resident). Sign up below!
