Writing for Radio, Paperback


This is a comprehensive guide which brings together the practical and theoretical aspects of radio writing.

It covers writing for all of the principle radio genres, including short stories, plays, documentaries and "docudramas", talks, features, adaptions, dramatizations, poems and even advertisements.

Containing historical overviews of the genesis and development of these catagories this text also seeks to isolate a "radio language", a vocabulary and syntax that produces pictures and images in the mind of the listener.

Clear examples are used from both broadcast and non-broadcast work and there are exercises in each section which can be used either in individual or group situations.
