Hello! My name is Kevin Wessels, I am an aspiring Voice Actor who is looking to try and use Librivox to build up a portfolio for myself. Not much else to say aside from I love using my voice and have recently graduated college with a Degree in Film and Video.

Hi Kevin and welcome.
The best starting point is submitting a one minute test and the team there will guide you on getting your setup right. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test There is no need for an expensive mic... a decent USB mic can be bought for about $20 on Amazon. Of course, you can pay a lot more for a better one, but best to see if you enjoy recording before forking out :D

When you start, it is best to read a chapter or two of established projects, but once you are familiar with the site and the process, you can branch out to any Public Domain text that interests you.
Poetry is also a popular launch point (see the Short Works forum, dropdown menu at the bottom of the page).

Librivox is a popular springboard for people wanting to turn professional. Please be aware that all recordings are Public Domain, which means you have no rights to them, and anyone can use them for any purpose (including selling them on Ebay)
