Audiobooks are enjoying an impressive year-on-year growth with the sector valued at £97m (up 39.3% on the previous year), but many small and medium-sized publishers don’t know where to start.

Join us online for this 90-minute workshop with Dominic Gribben. Dominic is an audio publisher at Hachette UK with responsibility for the audio lists across Hodder & StoughtonHeadlineJohn Murray Press and Quercus. In addition to traditional audiobook publishing, Dominic and his team oversee the development of audio original projects, audio partnerships and podcasts.

This workshop will cover:

  • Overview of the market and history of the format
  • Overview of the retail landscape
  • Dominant and emerging genres in fiction
  • Profiles of the audiobook consumer
  • Factors impacting success (e.g. narrators, reviews)
  • Recording options (home vs studio, in-house vs external)

This event is delivered by the Publishers Association in partnership with the Northern Fiction Alliance. If you are a member of either organisation, you can attend free-of-charge.

If you are not a member, the fee is £30, which you can redeem against the cost of your membership if you join the Publishers Association. If you’d like to find out more about membership, get in touch:
