Anthology of Massachusetts Poets by William Stanley Braithwaite (1878 - 1962).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/anthology-of-massachusetts-poets-by-william-stanley-braithwaite/



Volunteers outside the USA: William Stanley Braithwaite died in 1962. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).

Poet and editor of many anthologies, William Stanley Braithwaite, gathers a collection of poems from well known and lesser known poets from Massachusetts, including many women. The poems range from lytic poems of nature to those of more reflective and spiritual themes. ( Larry Wilson)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    .
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    .
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension.

    Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    .
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2294
    .
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.
    .
    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard
    .
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    At the end of the book, also say, "End of Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1913 edited by William Stanley Braithwaite"
    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Thank you, MaryAnn!
You MC's must be busy with the end-of-year push and the post-holiday rush of new projects. :shock:
I appreciate your help.

I think my post was accidently missed(?) - or should I be looking for some darker meaning. :wink:
