Date & Time: June 25, 2:00pm – July 1, 9:00am
Location: Monson Maine

This workshop will demystify the role of the story editor in creating audio narratives. Distinct from producing, reporting or mixing work, a story editor helps to shape, refine, support and guide reporters and producers in making narrative audio pieces by editing scripts, thinking through story structure, listening to tape, and guiding the decision-making process. Whether you are a producer or an aspiring editor, this workshop will be a valuable addition to your toolkit. This will be a hands-on class and students will have a chance to edit actual work in progress. We’ll cover the editor’s essential toolbox, strategies for structure, project management, working with collaborators, navigating power and relationship dynamics in the creative process, and how to give great feedback. Sessions will be a mix of lecture, discussion, listening, and hands-on practice. This workshop is aimed at mid-career audio producers who want to make the leap to editing but are looking for some concrete skills and guidance to do so. This workshop is offered in collaboration with the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.

Monson ArtsMonson Arts is a residency and workshop program in Monson, Maine. An initiative of Maine’s Libra Foundation, Monson Arts began programming in 2018. It was started as a way to spur economic development in Piscataquis County. Monson, the last town before the 100 Mile Wilderness on the Appalachian Trail, was the home of photographer Berenice Abbott, painter Carl Sprinchorn, and was a center for slate quarrying and furniture making. Monson Arts’ mission is to provide time and space for creative work. This is done through a combination of residencies, workshops, community/school programs and initiatives, and exhibitions. 8 Greenville Rd. Monson, Maine
