What is Community Voices?
Community Voices is all about getting local voices on the air. We help local people record essays, poems and commentaries. We work with public school teachers who want to bring radio into their classrooms. We collect oral histories. In the spring of 2011 we launched a training program to teach listeners how to produce radio stories.
The Community Voices Training Course meets for a Saturday seminar once a month for six months, from January to June. Participants learn to record and edit audio, conduct interviews, write for radio, and ultimately produce a feature story.
The fee for this course is $250 and includes a software license. Recording kits are available to checkout.
