Online Workshop

The Transom Online Workshop (TOW) is an experimental learning environment for conveying the art and craft of multimedia storytelling, supported by the Knight Prototype Fund. Transom has extensive experience teaching narrative non-fiction in our on-the-ground Workshops and ever-expanding web-archive of learning materials. TOW takes our educational expertise and applies them to new ways of acquiring composition and production skills.

We have started our final beta test, TOW 0.3. This workshop is now full and accepting no more testers. At this point we do not know if they’ll be another instructor-led workshop. We will, however, offer an instructor-less (free) web-based path thru the learning materials, due out February 2014.
