Why do you all wrote about only one Dostoevsky? There are a lot of other authors. Pushkin, Chekhov, Lermontov. Why you didn't think about our poetry? Block, Yesenin?
Well. I'm a native Russian speaker. So what can I record? :D

We have 4 out of the 5 authors you mention, (besides Dostoevsky). Here are the links to their works in our catalogue.

Pushkin -
Chekhov -
Lermontov -
Blok -
Yesenin - not yet

You can record anything published in 1922 or earlier. Here is a link to our current Multilingual Short Works Collection 013 - Poetry & Prose.


I strongly suggest you first record the 1-minute test mentioned in your welcome email, just to check your technical specs. And then read the first post of the above link for all the information you need to submit a poem.

Have fun!

There isn't actually a lot of Dostoevsky in Russian, 2 or 3 books and one of them is in process. There are a lot of Russian authors but few readers who can read in Russian. Though recently there are a bit more. :) It would be great if you join too.
