VOA20 - Audiobook Academy Page


 

The VO Atlanta Audiobook Academy presented by ACX is a deep dive into audiobooks geared towards those who have narrated fewer than 50 titles. Areas of focus will be technical, business and performance with Breakouts and X-sessions available in each in addition to a few panel discussions designed to help you. Whether you are at the start of your audiobook journey and need help setting up your home studio and profile for audiobook work, you've recorded a few audiobooks and need guidance on next steps to forward your career, or you want to work on improving your performances - The Audiobook Academy at VO Atlanta (AAVOA) will have exciting educational options and top names as your guide.

Audiobook Academy Highlights:


The Audiobook Academy takes place alongside the main VO Atlanta Voiceover Conference, so if you're interested, you can register for both at a discounted rate, and get the best of both worlds.
