Hello, everybody! :D I am an English MA student in Wisconsin and I also teach first year comp. I've been curious about voice work for a while, but I always thought it was something you had to "break into." I started recording mp3s of my theory homework so I could listen to them on my commute. I soon wanted to do it to help other people too, so I researched how to make a podcast and ended up here! :mrgreen: My own recordings have been rather undisciplined, so I'm excited to work with the high standards yet creative freedom I've seen so far.

Ideally I would like to do mostly readings of canon lit, poetry, essays, criticism, etc. since I'm studying it all anyway and it would be nice to kill two tomes with one mic. 8-)

Nice to meet everyone!

hey, welcome fellow gradstudent!
I think that's awesome you've been recording your own readings. the idea of having audioversions of some of my course readings is one reason I'm here, too.

Right? It's so useful, especially for the thicker stuff with giant strings of giant words that you have to read aloud anyway to comprehend.
