On January 30, please join us for Finding Your Writing Voice through Audio Form, a Writer's Studio workshop hosted by Laura Joyce Davis.

Jazz legend Miles Davis once said, “sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.” In writing—and podcasting—we often have to write and revise many drafts before we understand the magic of telling stories in a way that is all our own. In this workshop, we'll discover what the audio form can show us about finding our voice on and off the page, and learn how to reincarnate our written words to become vibrant, sound-rich podcast episodes. Come with printed pages of an essay or short fiction you'd like to transform, or use the time to find the spark for a new story.

Laura Joyce Davis is a Lecturer and Managing Editor for the Stanford Storytelling Project. She is the Executive Producer of Shelter in Place, which won the International Women’s Podcast Awards category for “Changing the World One Moment at a Time.” She co-founded a PR News Social Impact Award-winning podcast training program, teaches online with Narrative Podcasts, and was one of Podcast Magazine's Top 22 Influencers in 2022.
