London Writers Network
Writing for Audio

How do writers access the opportunities offered by audio; an exciting, growing and booming publishing format? Join us for an evening exploring how to get into writing for audio.

Storytelling through audio has traditionally been championed by radio, but with the growth of podcasts and rise of subscription services such as Audible writers are finding new opportunities to write for audio rather than print.

In this evening of talks and networking, we’ll hear from a writer, producer and other industry professionals, as we discuss how to get into writing for audio.
