Storyteling techniques - How to build suspense in non-fictional narratives
03:00 - 04:00 p.m.
It is one of the most beautiful and complex tasks in radio and podcasting: telling exciting stories. How can I bind listeners to a non-fictional story for 15, 30 or 60 minutes? Or even get them excited about a whole series? Where do I start? How do I keep the tension? And what about the ending? The session with Sven Preger will reveal storytelling techniques and give sound examples that help answer these questions.
