The Garden of Dreams by Madison Cawein (1865 - 1914).
This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/the-garden-of-dreams-by-madison-cawein/
Madison Cawein from Kentucky, displays a wider range of his poetic dreams, from the bright to the dark. ( Larry Wilson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/31712
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!


      Magic Window:



      BC Admin ============================================
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

    7. DURING recording:
      • No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Madison Cawein, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
      At the end of the book, also say, "End of The Garden of Dreams by Madison Cawein."

Awesome Larry! ... I love Cawein!

I'll be by to claim a nice handful after you get the MW all set up!

Are you going to use the shorter poetry disclaimer, intro/outro for this or stick with what the template gave you?

Thanks so much, Sonia!

I didn't have time to change the disclaimer, but it is in there now.
I've set up the MW and put myself in for a few pieces.

More readers and a DPL would be most welcome!

Hi Larry,

I made some claims yesterday morning and have some time over the holiday to do some recording. I know you are busy, but if you could give me the green-light on them, even just verbal, I would appreciate it!

Thanks much!!
