Hello everyone. I’ve had the following request from a Canadian voice actor who is looking to build his portfolio. If you have some flash fiction (under 1,000 words) that you would like recorded… free of charge… do let him know.
Hello,I am hoping you can help me find a few flash fiction authors that would be open to having an audio production made for them for free. I am trying to flesh out my portfolio at the moment and using flash fictions seems like an effective way to hit a few genres in a short amount of time.I have been in numerous video games and a few technical writing works, but I have yet to narrate a short story. Finding an author that is willing to have their work transformed to audio form has proved to be a harder task than I thought it would be and I figured perhaps I was going about it the wrong way. Instead of contacting authors directly, perhaps I could find some kind of publishing end of the chain that could help me out.I was hoping you could help me, maybe in a mail-out or blog post proposing my idea to authors. I am willing to try any genre, any style. I just need some works in my portfolio. I am really hoping for a few VERY short stories, as audio productions do take a long time and I still have to be able to pay my mortgage :) That being said I am also willing to offer below industry rates for any author that likes my voice and would like to use me for their full-length novel.Would you be willing to help out a voice actor flesh out his portfolio? Thanks for your time and consideration!-Elijah LucianVoice Actor
