The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Media production educational series at Goldendale Library


The Goldendale Library embarks on a series of free programs on media production skills starting this month. From interviewing and program design to creating webcasts and editing, this program series offers people a chance to develop skills for modern media; skills that apply to Internet broadcasts, radio and television writing, videos and more.

The first series of programs will run from February through April, followed by three more in the autumn. This Saturday, Feb. 15, will be “Interviewing for Media” from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants will learn simple and effective techniques to elicit deeper, often unexpected responses from their guests. Whether interviewing for live webcasts or radio, or collecting oral histories for research and family memoirs, this workshop will be interesting and valuable to a wide variety of people.

Next in the series will be “Writing for Media” on March 8 and “Program Design for Media” on April 12. The writing workshop will focus on specific skills and styles unique to radio, television and webcast writing. Program design will explore the use of editing, story arc and sound to create interesting and engaging programs on the air.

Those three workshops will be taught by Wendy Warren of Yakima. Warren has worked as a journalist, writer, and director for television, radio and magazines. She has also taught television production, writing and journalism and received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists for her broadcast work. She has a degree in Mass Communications from Central Washington University. Warren is currently a freelance writer and is working on a memoir about her first summer as a fire-lookout on Grayback Mountain outside of Goldendale.

This program series is underwritten by the Friends of the Goldendale Library. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, call the Library at 773-4487. The Goldendale Community Library is located at 131 W. Burgen St.
