*Get in-depth answers to your questions about the art, craft, and business of writing for audio fiction.

How do you write for a purely acoustic medium? How do you keep listeners interested? What's the best equipment to use to produce your audio content? This roundtable session offers registrants exclusive access to writers, directors, and producers in an informal setting.

Come prepared with questions that focus on the importance of both the creative and business sides of breaking into audio fiction.
