Hi everyone - I'm Ken from England - I'm very much looking forward to taking part in such a wonderful project.

Got the thumbs up on the one minute test so now I'm looking forward to my first real recording #nopressure

With that thumbs up on the test, you go pick something to read. We have "Readers Wanted" forums for book projects, poetry and short stories, and dramatic works such as plays. You look for any project that catches your fancy, pick a section that is open, and post a claim in that project's part of the forum. Be sure to read the first posting in each project - all the instructions are there.

Thanks, Todd

No pressure - it's true. ;) If you're nervous, start with poetry or something else short. My first few sections were only a couple minutes long. It helps work the butterflies out of the stomach.

Fiction, partly about jail atrocities: It Is Never too Late
Watergate Report, volume 2: Here
