The Violet Nights Podcasting Course

Part of Violet Nights

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Do you love podcasts? Want to know how to make them? On this free two-day course for young people, learn how to plan, make and share your own by working on an existing podcast series alongside the experts.

Working with other young people and the Violet Nights team on one of their episodes recorded in front of a live audience, you can experience what it’s really like to produce and edit a podcast.

In return you’ll get a namecheck on air and learn loads of core skills to use in producing, editing and publishing your own podcast.

Discover how to develop your own ideas for a series and episodes, who to interview and the range of formats to choose from.

Learn crucial skills, including how to edit and write scripts; how to record and publish podcasts; the secret of creating eye-catching titles and descriptions; and how best to promote your content.

For an intensive, fun, educational and rewarding experience, join podcasters Phillip Brown and Chrystal Genesis and the Violet Nights team to create this podcast.
