Come ready to write! First thing in the morning, students will be given a prompt for a radio essay of 500 words. As a class, we will then work on writing for radio and voice. In the afternoon, students will revise their essays, and there will be an opportunity to work on the copy one-on-one with the instructor. (7 hours)
