Welcome welcome! We're delighted you're here. :)

One of the areas we could really use some help with right now is proof-listening. There are several projects, most notably King Solomon's Mines ( that need people to listen through chapter files for long pauses, repeated phrases, etc. It's a great way to help, especially if you're waiting for new equipment (like a microphone for doing recordings!) to ship to you. :)

Once you're ready to try recording, hop on over to Weekly Poetry or Aesop's Fables (both in Readers Wanted: Short Works, Very short pieces are a great way to get used to your recording equipment and software before embarking on a longer piece of writing.

Enjoy yourself, and let us know if you'd like any help!

Great to have you here. Really the best advice we have is to find books you're interested in and enjoy the process. Relax and take your time, and get a good microphone.
