21 Targets: The 21 Day Audiobook Challenge

Note: The February course is full! The next course will start in a few months. Please subscribe to our newsletter to get notified.

What is 21 Targets?
This is a 21 day challenge curated by award winning narrator and director Matthew Lloyd Davies.

STRICTLY LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS

Doing precedes understanding. This challenge is about doing, about discipline, deadlines, listening, discussion, and support.

By keeping absolutely to the rigour of prep, record, and upload each and every day, by listening to your course cohorts, by getting peer to peer review each and every day…you will grow, you will expand your experience, you will improve and understand in more depth; your voice and your place in the audiobook industry.

Each challenge is to be met within 24 hrs of being set. The discipline of meeting every deadline and listening each day to your cohorts and giving peer to peer review is what this is all about.

THREE TIMES A WEEK there will be group sessions for the entire cohort: Notes and feedback from MLD: What has worked? Maybe what hasn’t? How different is each take on each challenge? Read in a classroom situation and listen to feedback. Discuss the projects and the industry as a whole with a multi-award winning narrator and director.

This is not for the faint hearted…this is tough. Can you complete the 21 day challenge?
