The Oregon Poetic Voices Project (OPV) will host an open recording session here at the Portland Archives and Records Center on the PSU campus (1800 SW 6th Ave, Suite 550) on June 24, 2011, from 1 – 5 p.m. Poets may record up to four poems, at no expense, to be included in the OPV archive, which is hosted by Lewis & Clark College and available on the web at www.oregonpoeticvoices.org.
All poets, published or not, are welcome to record. This will be a first-come, first-serve event and poets will have about fifteen-minutes allotted to them. Poets should consider these time constraints when deciding which works they want to record.
All participants must be prepared to sign a waiver to allow the recordings and texts to be displayed on the website (www.oregonpoeticvoices.org). Please also bring paper copies of the poems and a biographical statement. All participants will be mailed a CD of their readings.
For more information, please direct any questions to Poetry Project Fellow, Melissa Dalton at 503-768-8190 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All local poets are also welcome to schedule an individual appointment to record in the OPV office, located on the Lewis & Clark campus.
