Event description

Description

Lucy Flannery is our August hub tutor, teaching a workshop on writing for radio.

Have you ever considered writing a play, or a sitcom, for radio? Do you think you could hold a listener spellbound with just the power of your words?

In this workshop, you will learn about the strengths and challenges of writing for this unique medium, which embraces both the epic and the intimate.

The evening will cover:

  • An analysis of the UK radio audience
  • The delivery of information ‘without pictures’
  • The use of silence, music and sound
  • Practical exercises
  • An explanation of the commissioning process for BBC Radio 4

Lucy Flannery has written both comedy and drama for BBC Radio. She has worked with celebrated actors including Alison Steadman, June Whitfield, Patrick Barlow, Roy Hudd, Jan Ravens, James Grout, John Duttine, Sally Grace and Jonathan Aris. Her sitcom Rent won the Writers Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy. She also has credits in TV, film, theatre and fiction.
