The Business of Audiobooks – Calgary

Saturday, Nov 2, 2019

10:00am – 5:00pm

While paper and e-book sales continue their steady downward decline, the audiobook industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds, increasing by approximately 20-25% year after year after year. This course is designed to help you navigate the path to finding and booking work in this fast-growing profession.

The audiobook world is unlike any other in the voiceover and acting professions. This is publishing, not entertainment, and agents and casting directors have no place here.  In “The Business of Audiobooks,” Dawn takes her students through the various methods of finding work in the world of authors, the public domain and publishers, both large and small. The class will cover topics such as:

  • auditioning;
  • demos;
  • rates;
  • union provisions and considerations;
  • using ACX and other ways of connecting with independent authors;
  • producing public domain works;
  • connecting with publishers;
  • networking;
  • websites and other social media;
  • marketing practices; and
  • any other topics that arise from these discussions.
