Stories are finally beginning to take shape here at the YMP headquarters! Our last several weeks of Youth Media have been dedicated to collecting final interviews, logging tape, and learning Adobe Audition, our audio editing software at Marfa Public Radio.

Student producers have been meeting one-on-one with their mentors to talk about how to turn their collected audio into a compelling radio script. There's been a lot of material to comb through, but that makes for a better story!

In editing our scripts, we've addressed questions like: What kind of perspective is missing from the story? Which moments leave us wanting more? Is there a sense of momentum in the story? Once the scripts are finalized, students will begin coming in for narration recording sessions with Sally.
