Emirates LitFest 2012 Radio Newsday Workshop
The Radio Newsday workshop with Max Easterman and Suzanne Radford was a day-long class on producing radio news, recorded around the 2012 LitFest and edited on site in one of the InterContinental Hotel’s suites, converted for the day into a studio where the participants could edit their stories on professional equipment.
The five finished stories cover the LitFest’s cookery strand, a performance by JESS students at the Fringe Festival, the Arabic language, what makes an icon, and the Oxford University Press Story Writing Competition.
