Shannon Parks (aka Marguerite Gavin) has been a professional audiobook narrator for more than twenty years with over 500 titles, numerous Audie nominations and Earphones awards, and a devoted fan following. Audiofile magazine describes Shannon as having the “coveted ability to disappear as the narrator, letting the story take the limelight it deserves.” Her narration spans nearly every genre from mystery, fantasy, sci-fi , romance, and children’s fiction, to a huge variety of non-fiction work. Drawing on her decades of experience not only as a narrator but as a director, actress, and acting teacher in theater, Shannon’s work as an audiobook coach focuses on the art of acting in narration. She has been described as having a “magic ear, and an ear for magic.”
ALL who register--even if you can't attend live--will receive the link to the webinar video within a week after the live event.
You MUST register by 1 hour before the webinar to ensure you can attend live.
This class will focus on an exploration of acting and vocal techniques designed to strengthen and expand the audiobook narrator’s approach to character development, storytelling, vocal flexibility and range. Shannon uses her personal “vocal layering technique” to develop character specificity and differentiation in fiction narration.

The class will begin with an overview of techniques for character exploration in the prep stages of narration: given circumstances, need/obstacle/action, relationship and discovering the essential narrator voice; and progresses to a vocal layering technique for creating a specific and distinct voice for each character in the story. Students will have an opportunity to experiment with and implement the process with guidance and feedback from Shannon in the course of the webinar.

What people are saying about Julie...
I love the way you do your voiceover and I always have. More people should use you as a model--especially women... and I congratulate you, you have a wonderful career.

I learned more in ONE SESSION with Julie than in TEN with my other coach!
Don White, VO Talent

After coaching with Julie, I've won 30 jobs in my first year. I had no professional background in radio or acting. I know that her coaching has helped improve my skills immensely. I'm so thankful for the wonderful start she's given me into getting paid to do something I absolutely adore!
        Jennifer Mary, Australian VO talent
Julie is my first and ONLY recommendation whenever a voiceover student tells me they want to learn long-form anything. Audio books, medical narration, e-learning - she is the top coach in these areas hands-down. She's also a generous spirit, a smart business woman and a wonderful person. Grace, humility, beauty, that's Julie. -

voiceover actress, coach and author

I have put to use what she's taught me (and have really noticed a difference in my narration work because of her!) I have been getting tons more work, and it's work I love, in the eLearning space.

Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Your session on eLearning and narration has manifested itself into my career in a big way! It makes up at least 75% of my VO income and I feel like I was born to do it.
