Fairfield County Writers’ Studio Holds Podcasting Workshop

The Fairfield County Writers’ Studio is located in Westport, Connecticut. They offer a variety of classes, most of which focus on writing. This month, they join forces with the Connecticut Press Club to offer a one-day workshop on how to create a podcast.

Podcasting 101 will be held on March 18, 2017. It will take place from 9:30 a.m – 12:30 p.m. Those interested in attending must register. Space is limited. The workshop costs $75.

Instructor Ben Bogardus will teach Podcasting 101. He specializes in teaching media and broadcast news writing, TV reporting, and TV newscast producing. Ben Bogardus has won an Emmy and a national Edward R. Murrow award for his work.

Podcasting 101 truly is designed for people who are brand new to podcasting. In this workshop, you can learn how to put together a podcast from start to finish. You can get hands-on experience while attending the workshop.

Bring your laptop and smartphone with you. It is highly recommended that you download and install the Audacity audio editing program prior to the workshop. Audacity can be downloaded for free, and I suspect this could be one reason why it was selected.  After learning some podcasting techniques, participants will get the chance to apply what they learned by creating their own podcast in class.
