Hi there, Matt. I just joined Librivox yesterday, and while I was waiting for my account to be verified, I recorded a reading of Sea Slant. I wanted to use this to A) Help you out with this book and B) to get feedback on levels, style, et cetera. Would you be so kind as to listen to my recording and give me any and all feedback I can use to improve it an hopefully get it on your collection?

Thank you so much
I'm always looking for advice on everything from forum etiquette I might be unknowingly violating to my recordings. Please don't hold back, I want to improve

All of the poems for this project have been assigned to others, including Sea Slant, Bob. You are free to contribute it to Rapunzelina's latest poetry collection: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=68344 in the Short Works section. She would be the one to ask about audio specs in this instance.

Thanks Helen, Eva, and Nemo; MW updated with your work.

I need to record my last section too; I think that this is the fastest turnaround for a project I helmed that I've seen in my 8 years with LV.
