Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1913 edited by William Stanley Braithwaite (1878 - 1962).

William Stanley Braithwaite, a talented poet in his own right, was most notable for his anthologies of poetry including these annual collections that spanned at least twelve years from 1913 to 1924. These were composed of poems written in that year, and included a wide range of poetry from classical to avant-garde. As an African American, he also included many selections from other African American poets. He is recognized as a significant publisher of Harlem Renaissance poets ( 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!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/63265

There are at least twelve issues available on GP and Archive, so these could be put in a group with the intent that we will be able to complete them all.

Please wait until the Magic Window is filled out before making any claims.

I'm glad you enjoyed these.

The reading is fine, but there is a really loud background buzz. You might be able to use the notch filter feature to remove it, but I tried just basic noise reduction in Audacity. I actually ran it twice at a setting of 12, to get it all out. So, see what you can do. Also the ending silence for section 3 is a bit long. We like it closer to just five seconds.

And it seems I left out part of the upload file name. so could you use the format, anthologyofmagazineverses1913_##_braithwaite_128kb.mp3

Thanks!
~ Larry
