If you are already a professional narrator, simply send me a note via email or facebook messenger and let me know what specifically you’d like to work on. Working narrators will have first priority in my Friday coaching schedule.
If you are interested in embarking on a career in audiobook narration, and need to start from square one, I’m opening auditions for a small group class this Oct-Nov. Included in the $750 course fee will be five group seminars via Zoom, and five one-on-one coaching sessions. We will address the performance, technical, and business aspects of a career in audiobook narration. I will be selecting five participants and an alternate. Application is via audio recording. If you have access to a microphone, great, but a voice memo on your smartphone is just fine.
- mp3 / mp4 format
- length: no more than two minutes
- in a minute or less, tell me about yourself, why you want to narrate audiobooks, plus any relevant experience.
- in a minute or less, read me an excerpt you think is a good fit for your voice. Begin by saying the book’s title and author.
- Send your recording to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day September 15, 2017
I will announce the participants by September 25 and we will have our first group seminar at a mutually agreed-upon time after October 1st, with one-on-one sessions scheduled between group sessions.
If you are interested in audiobook narration as a hobby, I encourage you to look for an organization in your area that provides audio recordings for people with vision and learning disabilities, or consider recording for Librivox.
