Here is a comprehensive guide to the essential theoretical and practical aspects of radio writing in all principal genres--short stories, plays, documentaries/docu-dramas, talks, adaptations/dramatizations, poems, and advertisements. Vincent McInerney offers historical overviews of the development of each of these categories and an analysis of the nature of radio itself--an attempt to isolate a radio language, a syntax, and vocabulary that can produce pictures in the mind of the listener. He shows that radio can be taught effectively as prose, drama, and verse. Examples for analysis are included from both broadcast and non-broadcast work.
