Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

*Get in-depth answers to your questions about the art, craft, and business of writing for narrative fiction podcasts.

How do you write for a purely acoustic medium? What's the best equipment to use to produce your own podcast? How do you keep listeners  interest? This roundtable session offers registrants exclusive access to writers, directors, and producers in an informal setting. Come prepared with questions that focus on the importance of both the creative and business sides of breaking into and writing narrative fiction podcasts.

Only one roundtable sign-up slot per registrant. Registrants must have the day-appropriate badge.
