Writing for Radio – for computers and printers


This is a beautifully-designed, printer-friendly PDF version of Writing for Radio.

Radio drama is a marvellous medium for the scriptwriter’s imagination, un-beholden to set costs and with a huge audience for those plays that get produced – but it presents its own unique challenges. This comprehensive seven-part course will take you through a number of exercises and principles that have, time and again, helped editor, writer and tutor Margaret Wilkinson’s students create compelling radio dramas.

Reading lists, listening lists and exercises accompany the tutorials, which include:

  • how to ‘think’ radio;
  • monologues;
  • duologues;
  • where to source ideas;
  • structuring beats, scenes and full dramas;
  • redrafting your work;
  • and submitting your drama.

Use Writing for Radio to inspire and write your first radio drama, or refine one you’re already working on, and take those steps towards hearing your work on Radio 4 and other radio channels.
