About this event

Have you always wanted to record your loved ones' stories but never knew where to begin? Radio journalist and oral historian Celia Clarke will lead this free workshop on how to prepare for and record a StoryCorps-style audio interview.  

We'll talk about questions that elicit thoughtful and emotional responses, getting people to open up (or get back on track), listening closely, and getting what you both want from the experience. 

Longtime public radio producer (and Story House Ithaca co-director) Jonathan Miller will offer tips on how to make a clean recording using a digital recorder, your phone, the StoryCorps app, or sitting for a Posterity Project session. 

This workshop is intended for people who will be conducting the interviews,  but feel free to bring your loved one with you. We won't have time to sit down for an actual interview, but you'll leave ready to capture that precious voice!
