Voice Over: Fiction Audiobooks

Presented by: Theresa Buchheister & Ryan William Downey

Held online over Zoom: 

Theresa and Ryan take you for a deep dive into fiction audiobooks, focusing the five week course on preparing and voicing sub-genres of fictional literature. Week one will take you on an introductory journey through the genres and then we will tackle romance, suspense/thriller, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult. Each genre has multiple sub-genres and each one involves different kinds of text, character and tonal preparation. This class will involve assignments, so come ready to work!
