LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 213
This project is compete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-213-by-various/

This is an open collection of poems read in English for the month of February 2021. When this month is over, another one will be started. Don't despair if the sections are all filled up! I will add more sections as needed. :)
  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 3 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 74 minutes (so as to fit in an audio CD)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)
  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but they need to state date of publication (or book edition) to verify public domain status.
    • Please read from the text you post! You may not read from another source, as the other source may not be public domain!
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.
  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, leave no more than one second of silence and read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding (if you wish) date, location.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.
  5. AFTER recording:
    ID3 tags: Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc213_[poem's title in short form - no leading articles]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc213_roadnottaken_apc_128kb.mp3

    When submitting, please post in the thread, following this template:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    Duration:
    MP3 URL:
  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://librivox.org/login/uploader
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain. Please READ FROM the text you post!
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).
PL Type: Special - Standard PL, plus checking all tech specs including file names, volume, background noise, and plosives for new readers. For everyone, follow along with text and check to make sure any deviations from text don't affect rhyme, meter, or meaning.

Hi Rapunzelina,

Another month, another author no one remembers from me. This time it's a guy from the 18th century! I know that Hathitrust is preferable to google books, but I wasn't able to find a scan of this book there. That sort of appealed to me (this obscure author needs to be recorded!), but if it's a problem here I can keep looking for a better scan.

Thank you, Erin, Algy, and Lysa! Magic Window updated with PL OK!

Lysa, welcome to the Poetry Collection! I feel your sweet voice fits with Charlotte's poem. I have linked to the gutenberg text for this poem http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1019 Remember to also provide text source with your recordings next time and full info (title, author, duration, url) Thanks! ;) The [ ] are just placeholders in the file-naming format, but no worries, I can fix filenames at cataloguing!

Hi Lysa! I just noticed you added two more recordings! The more the merrier :D

The two Browning poems are missing the phrase at the end "This recording is in the public domain" if you could add that and re-upload (and you could use the correct filenames).

I will link to https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50954 for these two poems.

Welcome to the Poetry Collection, Rachel May! That was really good! I'm so glad you found Librivox to use and show your talents!
All is great with your recording, PL OK! I will link the recording to the gutenberg text: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/51488 (If a poem is in Gutenberg.org, it's the preferred text source to use)
And here's your Reader Page: https://librivox.org/reader/15742 which you can also access from your name-link in the Magic Window. It lists the projects you read for, and can also help you keep track of sections in ongoing projects, under the "Reader section details" link.
