The people who brought you Wolf 359, Zero Hours, and Time Bombs are teaming up once more to bring you Audio Fiction 101: a new course that teaches you the ins and outs of writing an audio drama and then walks you through rigorous exercises to solve narrative challenges in audio.
World-building, writing for the ear, plot structure: this course is over three hours of video content with Zach Valenti, Sarah Shachat, and Gabriel Urbina teaching you everything they’ve learned over the past few years of producing, studying, living, breathing, and eating audio fiction. The course has visuals, it has animations, and it comes with companion worksheets.
Head to https://learn.fearofpublicshame.com to see the course offering, sample a few videos, and read the FAQ.
Need-based scholarships are available to qualifying applicants—just send an email with the phrase ‘audio fiction scholarship’ in the subject line to Zach, Sarah, and Gabriel at email@example.com.
