I have three SHORT poems dealing with the same topic: Women: Can't Live With 'Em and Can't Live Without 'Em.
Is it OK to enter all three in one recording in the weekly or fortnightly poetry projects?
The authors are George Wither and Sir John Suckling (2).

You want others to read them (weekly/fortnightly poetry) or just want to record them yourself (short poetry collection)?

Hi, Tricia. Thank you for responding.
I have already recorded all three of these new ones; but, my "budget" for Love Stories #2 is already filled and I can't add more to that project.
I'd like to splice these three into a bundle and be treated as one entry into the next Love Stories collection or, into some other project. Can it be done?

"Can" it be done? Of course - technically, you can record 'em all in one file.

However, you wouldn't be able to credit the different authors, and the title of the section (that shows on the catalog page) would be very confusing.

I don't think it makes sense to bundle them into one file, for the reasons I just stated. In, say, the Short Poetry Collection, you could have each one separate, and possibly manipulate the file names so that they play one after the other, and they'd be searchable by poem title and author. But bundled all together is... weird. ;)
