17th- and 18th-Century Poems by Women by Katherine Philips (1632 - 1664) and others.

Quote:
This is a collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century verse by women, focusing first on women as writers. (Tonya Howe)

  1. Text source (only read from this text!): No single online compilation exists

  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    START of recording (Intro):

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "[Poem title] by [Author]"


    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Poem"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    • At the end of the final poem, say (in addition):
      "End of the ___ [school or class name] collection of 17th- and 18th-Century Poems by Women. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

  4. Example filename [titleinafewwords]_[author]_[yourinitials]_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) (e.g. authorbook_bradstreet_th_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)

Tonya,
I'd be happy to work on this with you as your MC. I'll get your project set up. It would help me if you could post links to PD on-line sources for each selection.
MaryAnn

OK, Your MW is set up. There's going to be some unique aspects to this project, but let's start with the basics and move on from there.

You'll need to start by logging into the magic window. Instructions are in the BC How-to; and this is a more detailed version of the First Login instructions (with pictures!)

You are the Book Coordinator. That means you fill out the Magic Window (MW) and post your links and times in the window when you upload your files. Please be sure to read all of the BC How To document, as that will give you more information on your role as a BC.

Please start by entering the title and author for each poem into the Magic Window. I've put in the first couple to get you started.
  • You can drag and drop the sections later if you want to change the order
  • NO DOUBLE QUOTES in section titles. If you want to appear to use double quotes, please type them in as two single quotes. Double quotes will totally mess up the software we use to move the files over to Archive and cause no end of headaches when it's time to finish off the project.

If you have any trouble getting into the Magic Window, please let me know.

Thank you Kristin. I'm not sure the timeline, so I'm going to move this over to going solo and we'll wait for Tonya to be back to set up the MW.
