Radio New Zealand and Playmarket are pleased to offer the opportunity for playwrights to take part in Writing Audio Drama workshops in Wellington (11 – 12 October) and Auckland (18 – 19 October)

The workshops will be run by Adam Macaulay, Executive Producer of Drama at RNZ.  Adam is a trained theatre director who has worked in Australia as a script editor, assessor, dramaturg and workshop director for the Australian National Playwrights centre. 

These workshops are a chance for you to hear the inside story on how you can get your writing onto the radio – and to an estimated audience of 60,000.  Try remembering the last time your play drew a theatre audience like that! You’ll also learn how audio storytelling really works, what’s possible (and impossible) in that medium and how to submit a script for commissioning.  You’ll even have fun doing lots of practical stuff and listening to radio plays. 

The Friday session will be three hours in the evening (6-9pm) and the Saturday session will be from 9.30am – 4pm. 

Contact Stuart Hoar (scripts[@] if you wish to take part. The cost is $30 per person. 

Please let Stuart know by Wednesday 18 September 2013, as a minimum of eight participants is required for each workshop.
