Voice Acting Resources: (Part 2 of Voice Acting is easy, right?)

Updated: Jul 28, 2022

This post is exclusively about reliable resources for voice actors and aspiring voice actors. If a resource on this page loses it's credibility, I will remove it. I will do my best to continue to add credible resources as frequently as possible. If you know of a reliable, trustworthy, professional resource for voice actors that is not on this list and you feel it should be, please send me an email with the resource and why you believe it should be added. NO SELF PROMOTION! If you are on this list as a resource and the description is inaccurate or you would like to be removed, shoot me an email and I will address your concerns ASAP.


I am in no way affiliated with any of the following resources. I receive no payment from any of the following services/service providers. This list is exclusively compiled based on my research, personal experience with said resource, or repeated recommendation by others I know and trust within the industry.


Resources are broken down into categories: Audition Resources, Books, Coaches/Courses, Demo Producers/Writers, Podcasts, Rate Guides, Scripts, Social Media, Website Resources (free info and memberships). This list is a living document that will be updated as frequently as possible. However, gear will never be included on this list, but may be a Part 3 post in the future. Train, education yourself, and treat your space!! That will do more for you than any gear will.


Utilization of the following resources in no way guarantees a successful/profitable voice acting career. These are merely tools to put in your toolbox to assist you on your path. Doing the work is your responsibility!
