Writing for radio is an intermediate level course for people who have previously completed our beginners playwriting course or have equivalent writing experience.
This course is suitable for anyone including scriptwriters writing for stage and screen and is led by experienced writer Karen Brown. Karen works as a writer across Theatre, Radio and screen.
Her first ever script was for Radio ‘Footpowder’ about the death of the mining industry was produced by R4. To date her radio work has included 2 x 75 minute serials and six single dramas.
Unusually for radio drama, Karen writes about contemporary people who are often less privileged or on the margins of society, this makes for powerful, honest drama – Radio Times
Sections of the final scripts will be read by professional actors in an informal showcase at the end of the course.
