Thank you!
Hello and welcome! :clap:
We include single poems in this collection, so I see two options for your recording. Either choose one, two, or three of those you recorded, in separate files, for this collection (you can then choose another 1, 2, or 3 for the next month, and so on), or since you recorded so many of those, you could record your own solo project of this book of poems, where you can either separate them in individual recordings, or group them in sections.
If you do choose any for this collection, please make sure that the intro matches the instructions in the first post :thumbs:

Quick question -- I want to read some poems for this collection from this book: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/59756

The author is listed as "Cushag" (in quotes) with "Josephine Kermode" underneath -- the poet's real name, she wrote under "Cushag" as well.

The author is already in the Librivox catalog under both names, and there's one poem that has been recorded, and the reader said the author as Josephine Kermode.

Would it be okay to read it as "(poem title)" by "Cushag", Josephine Kermode or maybe "(poem title)" by "Cushag", pseudonym of Josephine Kermode? or "Josephine Kermode, writing as 'Cushag'?" Or just go with Josephine Kermode?

Thanks,
Colleen

Thank you, L! I would love that very much, too! And welcome back to Librivox! :D :clap:

Are you using Audacity? I get the bitrate wrong. If in Audacity, when exporting as mp3, check the options in the Export Window, and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, and "128 kbps" for Quality. Then click save to export and Audacity should keep these settings for all future exports, too.
Also the filename should be all lower case, so when you next export use this for filename spc206_apology_li_128kb and upload to my MC folder (Rapunzelina) :thumbs:

All these ways you suggest are acceptable, so use your preference. In the catalogue page though it will show as "Josephine Kermode" because this is the name that is entered as her main one in our Author database.
