September Open Mic

It’s that time, the first of the month. I COMMAND YOU to participate in the Open Mic invitation.

If only I hadn’t skip-read that book on mind control.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Record yourself reading one of your own works.
  2. Post it on your site.
  3. Include a link to this site in your post.
    OR Comment on that month’s call for entries
    OR send me a message using the contact form.
  4. I will post a link with your name and poem title RIGHT HERE.
  5. It’s an open mic invitation. NOT a challenge.

Some tips:

  • Go simple.
    I record using my iPhone, then email/share the file with myself. I very rarely edit it, unless I really waited too long to start talking.
  • Want better quality?
    You can get a relatively inexpensive mic on Amazon that you can hook up to your computer. Some of there come with editing software. If I do edit, I use Audacity on the Mac. It’s free and pretty easy to use. There’s a version for Windows, too.
  • Hosting.
    If you pay WordPress to host your site, you can add your audio by clicking on the Add Media button in the post editor. Have the free WordPress? You have options.All of the sites below will let you upload audio. Some will host for free up to a certain amount of storage. (I think with Youtube, you’ll have to upload a movie, but you use a still image and add your poem.)

  • Questions?
    Ask below or contact me using the contact form (up above). I’ll try to help you out!
  • And if you have any tips, feel free to share them!

    1. Ha ha. You say it doesn’t work and yet, here you are 😉.

      I’ll post the link when I’ve got access to a computer later today. Thanks for joint in!

  1. If I still had a tongue. I’d be reciting my poetry here. As a matter of fact, I’d be doing many other wonderful things with my tongue — like licking………… an ice cream cone or a lollipop.
