Hi Michele

Glad to see these being done, I have been thinking of doing them myself. I shall claim quite a few if I am allowed to :wink:

As most of the poems are quite short would it not be better to use the short poetry intro/disclaimer rather than the full one every time? It is used for most poetry collections on LV.

Hi Alan happy for you to claim as many as you like as there are quite a few. Didn't know about the short poetry intro/disclaimer. Where would I find this please?

Suggested pattern for intro/outro (or some variant on):

For the first section say:
"Preface/Introduction to The Poems of Madison Cawein. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org." [Optional: "Read by your name."] "Preface."
End of recording say:
"End of Preface/Introduction." [Optional, and if not stated in the intro: "Read by your name."]
For subsequent sections say:
" Title of Poem by Madison Cawein. Read for Librivox.org by your name."
End of recording say:
"End of poem. This recording is in the Public Domain."
If you are recording the final section of the book, add:
"End of The Poems of Madison Cawein."
This is what I use on my poetry collections as do others like Larry Wilson.

Hi Alan
I have been adjusting the MW slightly as one of the sections was 13000 words. Please could you check the sections just to make sure I sign you up to the right ones please.
