Upcoming PANA Events

PANA-Rama with a Producer

PANA members are invited to join Hillary Huber in a relaxed conversation about getting cast in audiobooks. Each one-hour live event features a producer. Sometimes two! After a little conversation, three narrators from varying levels, and selected via lottery, will have the opportunity to read a short excerpt and receive feedback from the producer on how to strengthen their read.  This series is presented every other month and aims to educate and encourage PANA narrators.

This month featured Lisa Cahn of Hachette Audio. Lisa's event, along with those of Ally Demeter (Macmillan Audio), Erick Black and Pete Cross (Dreamscape), and Nick Martorelli (PRH), can be found in the members-only archival video section. The next event will be in January 2023. Check back here for more info!

Actor Bio Workshop

In June, DEI Committee members André Santana and Jennifer Aquino talked us through the fundamentals of writing an actor bio and coached three narrators with goal-oriented revisions. All PANA members can watch the replay video and get tips on navigating actor bios as a narrator, including advice around how your identities can play into or be separate from your public presentation!
