New Manifesto: Jessica Abel


Transom has a new, thoughtful and useful Manifesto from graphic author Jessica Abel, whose new book was published just a few days ago.

Of Abel’s manifesto, Executive Director Jay Allison says, “We don’t have a textbook at the Transom Workshops, but we think Jessica Abel’s new comic book Out on the Wire: The Storytelling Secrets of the New Masters of Radio is about as close as we’ll get. It’s really a master class in radio storytelling – not a simplified, dummy’s edition, but a deep examination of voice, story, sound, editing, collaboration and creativity – featuring many of the best producers working today. With pictures. Jessica has expanded on her book here at Transom, diving into the editing process a bit deeper in her Manifesto painfully titled, Your Baby’s Ugly. Check it out here!
