Writing Audio Drama
By Tim Crook
Routledge – 2014
Writing Audio Drama explores the common aspects of sound narrative in different practice media, and critically investigates to an advanced standard how audiogenic techniques transfer between radio, theatre, and film and other media such as videogames and animation. It enables readers to understand the practical and theoretical concerns of sound narrative across different story-telling media and to choose the correct medium for their writing.
