Hello!

I am new here and looking for some tips and tricks. Do you have any spots still open? I cannot seem to message you either so, you might need to reach out to me first!

Both your PMs appear to be live. I've sent you PMs.

I'd like join in the fun, but as a lurker mostly. My voice is shot.

Is there room for me, too? (I do not want to take a place of someone who can better contribute.)

Beets?! My mother tried to get me to eat them pickled. I was very adamant in saying 'no.'

I'll come anyway, I guess.

What a remarkable time. (And I apologize for having to leave the meeting before its close.)

Mark, your talent is clear and you were very much a positive influence upon us. You encouraged us to stretch ourselves and to feel free to experiment. Thanks very much!

Thanks, Kevin. The first outing was a little rough, but I think I can make improvements going forward.

Due to time constraints, not everyone got a chance to do a live read at tonight's narrator workshop. Consequently, I'm offering any of the participants a private 1-on-1 Zoom session. PM if interested.

The session was fantastic. I think it went very smoothly with little room for improvement.....did I say that right?
Very much appreciated! Looking forward to many more.

I agree, it was excellent. Just that slide show was very informative for me and the live demos reinforced it. I might, just possibly might, begin pausing a bit more at punctuation. And be intense much better. Who knows?

It was wonderfully put together and I really enjoyed listening to the reading and suggestions for improvement for everyone (including myself!). I learned so much!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Mark!

Hi! I'm new here and cant's use the PM function just yet. I was wondering whether I could also receive an audio copy of the session. Since it is held 4 AM my time, I will not be able to participate, but would love to listen to it to prepare for my test recording and overall librivox volunteer life.)))
Cheers!
Tamta
@sjmarky replying to your personal message here :D still haven't got PM function available, but thanks for your message. I am from Tbilisi, Georgia (Europe) and 4 AM is still considered midnight here not an early morning :D So I could not attend the session. If you got the permission to record from the participants, I would still love to receive it. If not, no worries, I'll start as every other newbie has with an amateur test recording and will improve with time (hopefully) :)
Best,
Tamta

Please do this again! I would love to participate in a narrator workshop! Maybe do this a couple times a year - I joined a month AFTER this last one!
Thanks!
