Holy crap,it’s October. Time for the OPEN MIC INVITATION.
You are cordially invited to play along. And since it’s October, spooky readings are encouraged. No, really. Go ahead. I’M ENCOURAGING YOU!
- Record yourself reading one of your own works.
- Post it on your site.
- 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.
- I will post a link with your name and poem title RIGHT HERE.
- It’s an open mic invitation. NOT a challenge.
- 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.
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.)
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!

Hahaha!!! You recited it backwards? That was so much FUN! I’m gonna get a bit creepy for my next audio. You’ve inspired me 😀
Well, I kind of cheated. I just reversed it after I made it sound a little twisted.
Looking forward to your audio!

I’m enjoying your recordings. I don’t do spooky very often but I’ll rummage around and see if I have anything appropriate
Thanks! I always look forward to hearing your voice.
It doesn’t have to be spooky. That’s just a serving suggestion. 😉
Well I do have a new poem I wrote today. Well yesterday now. Most of what you’re seeing pop up are oldies I am sorting through. But I have one new one.
