  1. Have you submitted this (or any other audio poems to the Missouri Review audio competition? Just wondering

    • dmlbooks says:

      I haven’t (know nothing about it).

      Thanks for the heads up Gabi.

      • You’re welcome, and good luck. I’m trying to record a short story of my own. Your seem to be pretty good quality (the recordings as well as the poems). What software do you use? Or is it done professionally?

    • dmlbooks says:

      I use “Audacity” to record my work, it is free and easy to use.

      My early stuff was recorded on a simple set of headphones, but I now have a better microphone. However, with Audacity, a reasonable result can be had with pretty much anything!

      Good luck with your narration!
