Overview of the course:

"Writing drama for audio is simultaneously the easiest and the most difficult type of performance writing. It is easy inasmuch as, on the face of it, the writer only needs to consider the aural dimension. However, it is difficult at the same time, for the same reason."--The Radio Drama Handbook by Richard J. Hand and Mary Traynor
