‘The structure was great, allowing us to slowly build up skills and an appreciation for the various elements of a radio drama. I think we got really lucky with the other participants too; everyone was friendly and supportive, and very generous in terms of bravely sharing their work to be critiqued so that the whole group could benefit and learn; but this was due to Camilla and Cordelia ensuring that the classes were a safe space. I liked the length of the course, it was a reliable, regular useful investment of my time during the apocalypse, which enabled me to learn loads and keep my brain creatively engaged. I know it was a HUGE time commitment for Camilla and Cordelia, but I feel like it was more helpful having this spread over 3 weeks rather than one afternoon workshop; we had time to ‘marinate’ what we’d learnt and I personally came up with 3 different radio drama ideas over the course, so thanks very much, ladies! : )’
