Anyone can join Librivox, participate in forums and begin to submit readings. All you have to do is REGISTER. Then you will receive a Welcome Letter which explains how to submit your 1 minute test. Once that is OK'd, you are ready to submit recordings.

However, I can't for the life of me this morning find a REGISTER button. Not on the Home Page. Not on any forum. And I registered so many years ago I can't remember how I did it. So we shall have to ask our MC to give us both explicit directions. I will also ask on the Help forum, and report back any findings.

This project is nowhere near full, so there is plenty of time for Flora to get set up.

From the HELP Forum:
You need to log out of your account. At the top right, right next to the log in button, there is a register button. Hope this works.

If Flora doesn't see a "register" button on the Home Page, then she must be logged in and registered. In that case she should just read her Welcome Letter and follow the directions for submitting her 1 minute test.

The text of the Welcome letter can be found here: viewtopic.php?p=668171#p668171

So far as I know, you can not submit someone else's recording under your name.

No problem. With this new information, she'll be able to Register. She did her recording on my machine, so we still have the .mp3 file to upload when she's cleared/registered.

Thank you for all your help.
You shouldn't wait for inspiration...
You should go out after it with a club.

Hi! I have uploaded a piece for this collection. It is a poem called The Wooing. I said the author was anonymous because the book is from a collection of pieces that don't seem to include the author, although there is a list of contributors at the start of the book. Let me know if you think I should change that and if so, to whom. Thanks!!!

Thanks Lynne and Anita. Both sections are well done, PL OK, and I've bookmarked both these books are good sources for more stories! :)
