Calling all aspiring writers, producers and journalists interested in radio storytelling.

KISL Island Radio will host a week-long Transom Traveling Workshop on audio narrative Sunday, June 16 to Friday, June 21.

This is an opportunity to be one of the 10 beginning-level students who will be a part of five-days of intensive training on Catalina Island. Eight participants will be selected from around the country.

Two Catalina residents will also be selected, who will receive tuition scholarships made available by the Catalina Island Performing Arts Foundation as part of a KISL-FM effort to nurture and promote local talent.

Participants will have the opportunity to train with Rob Rosenthal, lead instructor for the Transom Story Workshop of Woods Hole Massachusetts. Professional recording and editing equipment will be provided to all participants (or bring your own if you like).

Housing will be provided for seven nights for those students who are not from Catalina.

Workshop participants will gather Sunday evening and for the rest of the week be immersed in field recording, interviewing, digital editing, script writing, and narration.

By the end of the week, each participant will have produced a short profile of a creative person living on Catalina.

The workshop will conclude with a Friday night listening party.

Projects will air on KISL 88.7 FM.

Selection is competitive.

The station wants creative, dedicated newcomers seeking a strong set of entry-level skills. Previous experience isn’t needed, but helps: preference goes to those who have tried audio storytelling before.

Applications are available at www.transom.org and must be submitted by March 8.

Transom.org trains the next generation of public radio producers and writers at their facility.   

ity on the East Coast and through their website. This is their first appearance on the West Coast.
