About This Show
Writing Class Radio is for people who love stories and who get inspired by hearing other people tell their stories and who wants to learn a little bit about how to write their own stories. You'll hear students write their way to the truth. And you'll hear students trying to deal as we follow them outside of class and into their real lives. Plus you'll hear all the juicy stuff that happens in writing class---resistance, crying, break-throughs, connection. There's no better way to understand ourselves and each other than by writing and telling our stories. Everyone has a story. What's yours?

The way a story is told out loud adds another layer to a story. On this episode, we’re talking about how our physical voices can carry a story with inflection, pace, volume, tone, and pitch. Voice can even make us love a story we might otherwise not like, or understand.

Writing Class Radio is a podcast where you’ll hear true personal stories from the students in our class and learn a little about how to write your own stories.

No matter what’s going on in our lives, writing class is where we tell the truth. It’s where we work out our shit, and figure out who we are. There’s no place in the world like writing class.
