      Podcasting today is like blogging a decade ago—seemingly everyone is either doing it or plans to. But of the more than 750,000 podcasts available through Apple’s podcasting app, fewer than 1 percent crack 1,000 listeners per episode, and most don’t reach 200. What will you do to stand out and succeed? In this fast-paced course, Blue Ridge Public Radio producer and veteran podcaster Matt Peiken will help you sort through your show concepts, recording and editing options for modest budgets, potential time and money traps, and the marketing of your proposed podcast.  This three-hour course is for everyone: from beginners who don’t know where to start to current podcasters who want to improve the quality of their shows. Class meets Sunday afternoon November 3, 2019, 2pm-5pm with a short break. Cost: $50 General Admission, $45 for current FWR Co-Working members.  Partial need-based scholarships are available for this workshop. To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. Matt Peiken moved to Asheville in August 2017 to become the Arts & Culture Producer with Blue Ridge Public Radio. He's a career journalist—a former longtime staff arts and features writer with the St. Paul (MN) Pioneer Press and an arts reporter with the digital arm of WCPO-TV, in Cincinnati. He founded and managed a variety of online journalism efforts, including the video program 3-Minute Egg, the music-talk podcast Metal Brainiac, and the community op-ed page Opine Season. He also served as managing editor of the Walker Art Center’s magazine and as a longtime contributing writer to Modern Drummer Magazine. REFUND POLICY: The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may request a refund up until one week before the class starts via Eventbrite or email to flatironwritersroom[at] for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.
