1. Upload your poetry using the form:
On the right of the screen is a web form. Fill out the form to submit your poetry. This process expects that you have an MP3 file either on your computer or on a portable hard-drive. Use the form to link this MP3 file using the ‘Linked MP3 file’ button. If you don’t have an MP3, please consider using one of the other options below. Be sure to fill out the form completely.
Please note: copying your MySpace url is not appropriate, as your poetry cannot be downloaded from this page.
2. Sending a large file via www.yousendit.com
Some recordings are larger than the 2 megabyte limit set for each upload on the form. If your recording is larger than 2MB, then fill out the form on the right, and upload the tracks using www.yousendit.com. This is a free service that will allow you to upload your file directly to us. Please be sure to add your full name and contact details in the YouSendIt message field. The email address for delivery is: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Sending via Email
If you would rather use email, please fill out and submit the form on the left, and then send the MP3/s directly to Linda Kaoma, email@example.com. Send only 1 MP3 per email to ensure that files are clearly identifiable and unlikely to result in timeouts during downloading. Please be sure to add your full name and contact details in the email message field.
4. Submitting via CD
If you cannot use any of the above methods, you are always welcome to post CDs of your work directly to us. Be sure to include an e-mail address and phone number where we can contact you. The postal address is:
