- First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Voices Project supports Indigenous narration of Indigenous audiobooks
Our friends at the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) have launched a new project to support the production of accessible audiobooks written and narrated by First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. This project offers equipment, training, and wages, followed by publication in the NNELS catalogue, making the audiobook available to all people with print disabilities. For more information, interested authors, narrators, and publishers can visit the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Voices Project page.
- Jobs Newsletter and FAQs added to our website
We’ve made some updates and added a new service! Our members have a new way to receive job postings: Employers can now submit their paid opportunities to our Jobs Newsletter via a form. Job postings will be reviewed by our volunteers and shared with those of our members who sign up to receive the Jobs Newsletter. If you are looking to hire someone for a role related to working with stories (it doesn’t have to be Indigenous stories!), please visit our Hire a Member page and fill out the form.
If you’re a member, we will be sending out the first newsletter shortly, and you’ll always have the option to unsubscribe. If you’re not yet a member but would like to receive the Jobs Newsletter, apply to become a member here.
We’ve also created an FAQs page to respond to some of the most popular questions submitted via email. Thank you to everyone who’s contacted us with questions and messages of support. We’re so glad to have the opportunity to share with you a little more about what makes us tick.
And we’re always happy to answer more questions! Please feel free to contact us.
