Ann Dalton is a writer and producer of children’s radio dramas, broadcast on RTE Junior. Her audio drama workshops are aimed at activating listening skills and igniting children’s imagination. The children first listen to one of Anne’s radio dramas; then explore how a story can begin and how it can be brought to life in a radio drama. The children have fun writing, illustrating and then recording short scenes. Pupils from Scoil Mhuire Banrion will attend this workshop at Mayfield Arts centre.
