Oxford Poetry 1915 by Various ( - 0).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/oxford-poetry-1915-by-various/
The first of many yearly-published Oxford poetry books. ( Campbell Schelp)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/oxfordpoetry1915oxfouoft/page/n5
    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!

This is set up.

Are you going to put the poets' names in the MW section titles as well? I think that works well.

Thanks! I can definitely put the names in the titles. Thanks for the suggestion. I have BC'd a similar project merely once, and am always looking for ways to make it go better/smoother.

I will fill in the MW a bit later this morning.

Wow. There's some powerful works here. I started reading through aloud and dissolved in tears.
I'll stop by in a couple of weeks and see if there are any open slots - I can't commit at the moment because I'm away from home.

Yep, there are some pretty cool things in here. I like the diversity. I was surprised not to see this in the catalog.
