Record-a-Poem Group Opens on Soundcloud

The Poetry Foundation has created a new Record-a-Poem Group on SoundCloud, your chance to read your favorite poem and share it with other readers.

To upload a poem, you need to create a free SoundCloud account and visit this page to upload. Once you have uploaded, name the file in this format: “TITLE by POET read by YOUR NAME.” Use the tags “poem”, “poetry”, “poet name” and submit to the Record-a-Poem Group. The group has few guidelines:

1. Poems only without music.
2. Please tag your poems with the keyword “poem” and “poetry” and name your files TITLE by POET, read by YOUR NAME.
3. In order to maintain a diverse community in the group, we may not approve all the poems you post.
