Submission Guidelines for The Listen List: Outstanding Audiobook Narration

The Listen List: Outstanding Audiobook Narration Council compiles a monthly list of titles to consider. This list is e-mailed to the respective publishers along with a letter of instruction. Timely response to these requests is deeply appreciated by the Council.

Publishers are welcome to send/make available for download additional titles as they see fit if they believe they meet the criteria for consideration. The publication date range for material is October 31, 2022 - November 1, 2023. Publishers should be aware that the Council listens to hundreds of titles each year, and while individual members do indeed listen and make formal requests for non-solicited titles to be added to the consideration list, this is not a typical occurrence.

Publishers who wish to send non-requested titles have two options:

  1. Any publisher who has received a current letter of request may send additional titles to the Council members listed in said letter.
  2. Publishers who have not received a current letter of request may contact the chair of the Council. The chair will discuss with the publisher the type of titles eligible for consideration and assist the publisher in the process of distribution of titles to Council members.

Authors and narrators should speak to their publishers if they wish their titles to be sent to the members of the Council.
