The global audiobook industry continues to experience explosive growth. In 2017 alone, over 51,000 titles were produced. For actors, this is good news. Skilled storytellers are in demand, and can find their way into the industry in a number of ways, from the traditional casting process with publishers, to working in direct collaboration with self-published authors. Audiobook narration can be a valuable addition to an actor’s skill set, or over time can become a lucrative full-time career. During the workshop, participants will learn the artistic, technical and business aspects of an audiobook narrator’s working world. We’ll talk about the audiobook performance aesthetic, the advantages of having a home studio and how to put one together, and the various ways narrators connect with work.
