LibriVox Short Poetry Collection 116

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/short-poetry-collection-116/

This collection is closed. Please join us in February's collection, HERE.

This is an open collection of poems for the month of January 2013. When this month is over, another one will be started.

  1. How to record a poem - Initial Guidelines:
    • All poems read must be in the public domain (that is, not copyrighted).
    • You do not have to "sign-up" to submit a poem; as long as it's clearly in the public domain, just start recording!
    • There is a limit of 2 poems per person per collection.
    • Poems can be as short as you like, but not longer than 30 minutes (approximately 5000 words). (If you would like to record a longer poem, please discuss it with the MC.)
    • To see what's been recorded already, you can search the LibriVox Catalog - but remember that we welcome multiple versions! :)
  2. Find a public domain poem:
    The Poets' Corner is a great resource for public domain poetry. Other sources to try are Bartleby and Project Gutenberg.
    • You may use other websites if you like, but we will have to check them to make sure they are not copyrighted.
    • See this page for more info on copyrights. You can always ask me in this thread if you're not sure whether a poem is public domain.
  3. BEFORE recording:
    • If you are new to LibriVox, please check the Recording Notes thread first.
    • If this is your first time recording, you'll find this useful as well: The Newbie Guide to Recording.
    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
  4. DURING recording:
    • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by [author], read for LibriVox.org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    • No recordings can be accepted without the LibriVox disclaimer.
  5. AFTER recording:
    Add these ID3 tags:
    (If you're not sure how to add ID3 tags, please visit this page: How To Add or Edit ID3 Tags)

    Title: Poem Title (e.g. The Road Not Taken)
    Artist: Author Name and Year of Birth-Death [e.g. Robert Frost (1874-1963)]
    Album: LibriVox Short Poetry 116
    (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)

    Save file as:
    spc116_[poem's title]_[author's last name]_[your initials].mp3
    Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles - the, a, an, without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES):
    e.g. spc116_roadnottaken_frost_apc.mp3

    When submitting, please follow this template:
    Quote:
    [Title of Poem] by [Author] (BIRTH-DEATH)
    Text URL:
    MP3 URL:
    Duration:

  6. Upload your completed recording:
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
    http://upload.librivox.org
    Image
    (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: tg - TriciaG
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there.
    Also post the following information:
    • The title and author of the poem.
    • A link to the poem's text online (Poets' Corner, Bartleby, Gutenberg, etc.) so it can be verified as public domain.
    • The length of your recording in minutes & seconds.
    • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). Also let us know if you have a personal URL you'd like to list (e.g. a personal blog).

Please provide the birth and death years for the author. Thank you.

0:23 - a skip in the recording; otherwise OK. :)

I've uploaded a new file. I made the skip as subtle as I could with editing and it's not eliminating any words. Let me know if this is good enough or if I should rerecord the line.

Well, it's up to you. I definitely still hear the skip, but if you're happy with it, I'll mark it as OK. :)

I'm not very good at voice consistency, so I think that the skip is less distracting that me editing in a different reading of the line.

I am new to the forum. Are poems of Unknown origin allowed. I have tried to find it in the instructions and have failed. If a poet is in Gutenberg and is obscure to a point that the birth date is not found can that be recorded? If you have a poem that is by a poet that died for instance, but the poem is not in any of the public domain pages is that not eligable to be recorded. These are dumb questions, but they always save extra work when asked. Thanks.

If a poem is on Gutenberg.org (not gutenberg.au) and the bibrec tab says it's in the Public Domain in the USA, it's fine to record. Just note when you're posting the poem that the author is unknown, or the birth/death date is unknown.

If a poem can't be found on the PD poem pages, it would be best to post a link to another page you found it on and ask about it first. Others may have a better time finding a PD source for you, and/or may be able to state whether or not it's really in the PD. If it cannot be found in PD form anywhere, we'd have to have definitive proof that it's PD before it could be accepted. It may have been published posthumously, for example, and still be under copyright. If you have a book copyrighted/printed in 1922 or earlier that has poems in it, then we can use them, but we'd need to discuss it and jump through a couple hoops first. :)

Great! Thanks, Tricia! Here is the second! :D Feels good to have these submitted earlier! I don't usually do poems this long, but I thought this one was interesting. I think I caught most of the errors, but there is a lot of poem here. :D
