Thursday, May 24th at 7 p.m. at the Old Fire Station in Woods Hole, MA

Nine Transom Story Workshop students have spent the last eight weeks learning the craft of public radio story telling. Their pieces focus on people and places of the Cape, Islands and South Coast.

Join us for a public listening event on May 24th to celebrate their work and ask them questions.

Executive Director Jay Allison, says, “It’s a thrill to see these students learn the art and craft of storytelling so quickly, and even teach us something about our home. They arrive on Cape Cod, fan out on the ground, and come back with remarkable, surprising stories they discovered in the place we live.”

Lead teacher, Rob Rosenthal adds, “The class is more like a production team — nine reporters produce eighteen stories in two months. They each work on their own stories while also editing the work of others. It’s a process that takes them from “zero to producer” in a very short time. And the stories are top notch — surprising, creative, dramatic. They’re worth a listen.”

The listening event will precede a brief graduation ceremony and the public is urged to join us in applauding Transom Story Workshop’s second graduating class.

Seating is limited.
