Digital audio files

Prose | Poetry

On this page you will find links to digital audio recordings of poems, prose and drama texts. I recorded them in mp3 format using Audacity. The Real Media files were converted from the mp3 files using Helix Producer Basic. To play these files you will need a media player such as RealOne Player or Windows Media Player. You are welcome to edit the files and add your own FX. If you have a slow connection the files may take some time to download or open.
