Spoken Word – Vol. 1 Iss. 1

The current settings that I have on this site won’t allow the following files to be opened with Internet Explorer or Safari web browsers.   However, they can be listened to with the Firefox browser (and perhaps others).  I hope to have this remedied soon.

We hope you enjoy listening to the following 14 tracks sent to us by several poets – just click on the links below to listen.  Information on the contributors can be found under our contributor section by clicking on the poet’s name.  Also, if you have a recording that you’d like to share, please see our submission guidelines – we’d love to hear from you.                  ~ Enjoy
