A very cool idea! Would you be accepting submissions that had links to recorded readings by the artists? Or would you only be making readings of pieces that were selected? I have made a few of my own, and would be interested in making more. Oral recitation/performance is an area that I definitely feel there's a lot about which I'd be interested in learning.

We have a folder especially for member read pieces :) Though if you're that interested, you could note *disrhythmic about being a reader for the group yourself. I doubt anyone would mind :D

Wow... this is such a cool idea.

For me, poetry is meant to be heard, not read. :) (And every time I see a poem with some fancy and novel formatting, I think: what's the use of that? It doesn't matter when it's read aloud...) I often find myself reading or reciting my poems, or those of my friends or favourite authors.

I do too, which was why I'd been wanting to play with the idea for a while. I just didn't have the means until recently. Hearing myself is weird :O

I would love for you to read something! :la:

Maybe Lingerie, since you seemed to have particularly enjoyed that one? I think that'd probably be the best piece to read out loud, that I've written... I was way too nervous to read it in front of my class. May submit that one for workshop, though. :giggle:

Or anything else you want. I'd just really love to see what you could do with something I've written. :D
