Hooking Your Listener with Sara Davies

An introduction to some of the basic elements of radio drama, exploring how to hook your listeners in 90 seconds and then how to keep them.
Using some brief examples from recent radio dramas Sara will talk about some of these questions. What makes a good radio idea, rather than a stage play, a TV drama, a short story? What makes a good opening scene? What can only happen on radio and what can’t happen on radio? What are the different ways of telling the story? The group will do some snappy exercises to look at what works and what doesn’t.
