Podcasting Workshop Call for Registration

This free course runs from October 17 – November 7, 2023

Register by October 12, 2023:


Are you a UW student/faculty/staff engaged in academic or professional work that you wish you could communicate to a broader audience? Interested in building your resume while learning how to tell compelling stories about meaningful topics? Curious about what you can do with a podcast?

If YES: the UW Libraries invites you to apply for Storytelling Fellows! This is an innovative, hands-on program designed to highlight the interests and accomplishments of UW community members, using digital-storytelling skills and technologies. This totally free, four-week online program will take accepted fellows through the start-to-finish process of envisioning and creating a podcast suitable for an online portfolio, professional presentation, or academic project.

Folks who have participated in past Storytelling Fellows programs have created podcasts for the following reasons:

– To make digital streaming content for websites

– To communicate their work either to professional or public audiences

– To learn a creative, emergent form they’ll use in their teaching

– To learn a skill they can highlight on the job market and employ in their careers

– To tell stories that have never been told and never will be unless they do it

– To have pure fun

Storytelling Fellows Course Details:

– There will be four live Tuesday sessions hosted via Zoom from 2-4pm on October 17, 24, 31, and November 7. These sessions are mandatory.

– Finishing a 2-5 minute podcast (or a podcast of any length) is mandatory.

Take a look at the syllabus for more information:


No previous experience with media-making is necessary. Really, the only requirement is a desire to be creative, to finish a project of your own design, and to interact with other graduate students across disciplines.

This workshop is organized by the UW Libraries.
