Watch This Session

Once the poor relation to the ballsy big bucks of the big screen and the sexy silver dollar of TV, screenwriters are increasingly turning to radio as a possible outlet for their creative energies. All they find is a path already well-trodden by household names having used the medium to trial ideas, pilot scripts and most successfully, new comedy formats.  So why doesn’t everyone do it?

Seeing with your ears is harder than one imagines.

Where to start? Who to approach?  With what?
