HUSH +Writing Clubs + The Boom Site

= Opportunities at The Shire for secondary students

Join a Creative Team of Artists Through #HUSHpodcast

#HUSHpodcast, affectionately known as HUSH, is a sci-fi series written, performed and produced by The Shire's Audio Drama Team. It takes an eclectic team of creatives to produce the show which is first broadcast on the radio program Voices in the Valley before being uploaded onto iTunes.


The HUSH team is comprised of student writers, sound effect creators, composers, musicians, actors, illustrators, producers and social media experts. We meet three Saturday mornings a month with a recording on one Sunday afternoon. It's a crazy, wacky, wonderful team of artists who love telling a sci-fi story. Join us!
