    Double Your Audience with Audio: Creating Your Audiobook with Nathan Agin

    Did you know that now is a perfect time to create your audiobook, and that there are thousands of people waiting to read it? Plus, getting it out to market has never been more accessible. But where do you start? How does it work? What do you look for in a narrator?

    Authenticity Fest

    15:00 -18:00
    3909 Centre St San Diego, CA 92103

    Many of us wonder: Can I be myself AND be accepted?
    At Authenticity Fest, the answer is yes.

    At this FREE 3-hour event, we will share stories and talk about our true selves. You can come and just listen, and if you want, you are welcome to share your own story. The theme is authenticity & coming out, so please tell us about anything you were or still are nervous to share.

    Some examples of experiences or identities that people can sometimes be nervous to share about are

    • physical/mental health

    • drastic career changes (or desires to change careers)

    • non-traditional relationships

    • immigration status or history

    • drug use or abuse

    • gender identity

    • sexual orientation

    • financial struggles

    • other struggles or experiences

    You don’t have to decide in advance whether you want to share your story. You will also have the opportunity to share without getting on a stage, including anonymously.

    Please come within the 1st half hour and try to stay for the whole event. That being said, if you need to come late or leave early, you are totally forgiven.

    3:00-3:30 – snacks & fun welcoming activities
    3:30-5:00 – story sharing
    5:00-6:00 – discussion
