Julia Barton is an independent writer, producer and editor based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her recent work has appeared on Studio 360, CBC Radio, 99% Invisible, and other programs. She's also a media trainer in the former Soviet Union. Currently she's getting ready to head for Ukraine and Russia as a correspondent for PRI's The World.
With 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story, the TCF challenged producers to create pieces adhering to the following guidelines: they had to begin with some manifestation of the notion, “To begin with, they never got along”; they had to include a prerecorded voice, a rhythmic noise, and an exclamation; and they had to run 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Producer Julia Barton went with a production style she describes as "3-year-old conversational."
