Doing some catching up! Thanks for your patience! And there's no hurry, late contributions will still be accepted because cataloguing will be delayed a few days this time...

Sorry to be getting these last two in so late. Been a crazy month!
I think they are both timely, and hope you find them interesting.
Thank you for your contributions, Larry! Not late at all! PL OK and in the Magic Window!

Hi! This is my first contribution! I'd like my catalog name to be Evan Mantler. I don't have a website or anything to link to. Please let me know if I need to change anything for this time or if you have some tips/critique for my next recording!
Welcome to the Poetry Collection, Evan, and thank you for your recording! Nothing needs changing; in fact it's well read, with proper emotion, and inspiring to hear. Congrats on your first ever contribution!
Here's your Reader Page in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/reader/14880
which you can also access through your name-link in the magic window. It lists all projects you read for, so it may look a bit empty now, but I hope you enjoy recording and gradually fill it up! It can also help you keep track of your sections in ongoing projects, under the Reader Section Details link.

I'm using a new microphone on a different computer for the first time -- Hope I've got all the settings right!
Thank you! Tech specs are spot on! I do hear a weird whistling sound at the beginning, but it goes away after about 5 seconds, so I wonder if it's something like the microphone warming up or something... If you also notice that, and it happens each time, maybe it's worth waiting (recording silence) for the first five seconds before reading the text, and then cutting those off
Because the rest of the recording has a nice, clear sound!
Still, the recording is fine, expressively read and PL OK, marked so in the Magic Window!

Hi! I recorded this for the Weekly Poetry and was late so it was suggested that I submit it here. Thank you!
Thank you! Yes, always an option so that your recording doesn't go to waste! And it's a lovely recording, marked PL OK in the Magic Window!
