Hi Assassin

Great to have you here, and thanks to dragonking for the recommendation! Please don't say that about your voice... if you read in the forum a little, you'll see that many people don't particularly like their recording voices... but they're not the best judges for it! Different people enjoy listening to different things... so please don't be discouraged about this. Just give it a shot, and don't worry if it's not perfect at first - most readers here would say that one improves, the more recordings one does.

As for your other skills; great! I see you have already posted about the banners. And participation in the forum is always a good thing, too!

Why don't you have a look at the books that need readers in Readers Wanted, or do some poetry - you'll find a short chapter or poem just to give it a try!

Thank for wanting to help, and welcome to LibriVox.

Wonderful! We have other young people here who do recordings. The youngest I believe is only six, and has just done a wonderful reading of a Xmas poem with her dad!

We have several projects in Readers Wanted that might appeal to teens, but if you can think of any others, please leave a suggestion in Next Books (bearing in mind that the material needs to have been published before 1923)!

We look forward to hearing your ultra-young voice :) It'll be fun to have more recordings done by younger people!

Hey welcome to librivox! We LOVE young voices!

If you go here:
http://librivox.org/the-cow-by-robert-louis-stevenson/

You can listen to Fargo (age 8), Henry (age 10), and Grace (age 6).

We've also got 13-year old Andrew who's working on The Wizard of Oz -- you can find his post in "solo projects" and take a listen to his first two chapters.

If you'd like to start out with a poem, may I recommend looking through A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson:
http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext94/child11.txt

Lots of good poems there. If you find one you like, you can record it and submit it to our "Short Poetry Project" which you'll find over in "Readers Wanted."

Have fun!
