Musician Cariad Harmon began paying attention to radio stories about ten years ago, and after years of listening, wanted to start making her own radio stories. She recently attended a Traveling Workshop in Nashville. Transom occasionally features student work from the traveling workshops and her piece is one we wanted to feature.
Cariad focused on one student at a local adult literacy center, and after trying to write a narrative script decided to undertake what is a challenge even for more seasoned producers. In the words of Jay Allison, “she produced a quiet, beautiful non-narrated piece. When you listen, you hear only the story, not the stress of making it.”
