The Sound of These Whales is Mighty Sweet

Nic Sebastian's Whale Sound arose from an "... idea ..to record and post readings of a range of contemporary poems, selected through a mixture of solicitations and submissions (self- and third-party).

The recordings are posted, archived and indexed on her blog, and Whale Sound is also available as a free downloadable iTunes podcast. Links to poem texts available elsewhere online are posted, but no text is posted on the blog itself.

Whale Sound also accepts third-party submissions made on behalf of other web-active poets."

She says "...in a recent blog post on the project, I find that reading other people’s work aloud is the most tender and respectful, and also the most careful, way to engage with it. I hope you will join me in this continuing celebration. "


All this blogger can say is check it out. Her vocal renderings of other poets' work are amazing.
