Record-a-Poem is a group started by the Poetry Foundation. It’s kind of like poetry karaoke. Just record your favorite individual poem and upload it to the SoundCloud and then add it to the Record-a-Poem Group. The group is moderated, so it may take a few days for it to appear on the site, but we’d love to add your voice and your poem to the mix.

Need ideas for poems to record? Visit poetryfoundation.org and look up your favorite authors.

Some tips:

1. We want to highlight individual poems without music.
2. When you upload your file to the group, name it TITLE by POET read by YOUR NAME
3. Tag your file as “poetry”, “poems”, and “record-a-poem”.
3. Make the file public rather than private.
