ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS
All of our workshops are focused on a specific skill or competency related to audio storytelling or podcasting. We keep our class sizes small to encourage more group discussion and interaction with the instructor. Full and partial scholarships are available for every workshop - anyone with financial need can apply.

OPEN CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
We want to hear about you and a workshop that you want to teach at the Podcast Garage!
It should relate to one of our topic areas and have hands-on or interactive elements - this is not a lecture! The length can vary from 2 to 4 hours with a class size of 10 to 20 students. If you’re selected, we’re happy to work out the curriculum and details with you. We are accepting applicants on a rolling basis.
You do not need to have formal teaching experience to apply, just a passion for the medium and our mission to make it accessible to all. We pay instructors $250+ depending on the length and format of the class. Also, while many of our instructors are local (Greater Boston area), we have funding to pay for the travel of several instructors a year.
