Under-represented Voices Project for Narration

The Under-represented Voices Project started in 2020 from a commitment to working with narrators that can represent the texts they are reading!  This meant reaching out through Social media and offering free training in recording and voice alongside standard narration wages to make the project as open as possible to diverse talent.
