An Evening of Storytelling in Woods Hole
Presented by Atlantic Public Media
November 21, 2013
Atlantic Public Media will present a public listening event to celebrate the creation of new audio work by students at this spring’s Transom Story Workshop. It will be held from 7 – 10 pm on Thursday, November 21st at the Community Hall, 68 Water Street, in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Admission is free. Seating is limited. The event is sponsored by Atlantic Public Media, the local non-profit organization that founded our public radio station, WCAI, and created the Peabody Award-winning public media website Transom.org, a showcase and workshop for new public media. Since early October, nine beginning radio students have been living in Woods Hole learning the craft of telling stories with sound. The students range in age from early 20's to early 50's, and come from as nearby as New York City and as far away as Newfoundland and Beirut. The stories they’ve produced focus on our local area, and we expect some of the people they’ve profiled or talked with will be in the audience. A question and answer period will follow each piece. Executive Director, Jay Allison says, “This graduation/listening event has become a lovely tradition around here. In an era when non-distracted listening is rare, this event doubles down. The students have come to Cape Cod to listen, and during this evening, we, in turn, listen to what they heard.” The listening event will precede a brief graduation ceremony and the public is urged to join us in applauding Transom Story Workshop’s fifth graduating class.
