*/Oregon Poetic Voices Announces Call to Record Local Poets/*

**Calling all Portland poets! The Oregon Poetic Voices Project (OPV) 
will host an open recording session at the City Archives building (1800 
SW 6th Ave, Suite 550) on *June 24, 2011, from 1:00 -- 5:00 p.m.* Poets 
may record up to four poems, at no expense, to be included in the OPV 
archive, which is hosted by Lewis & Clark College and available on the 
web at www.oregonpoeticvoices.org <http://www.oregonpoeticvoices.org/>.

All poets, published or not, are welcome to record. This will be a 
first-come, first-served event and poets will have about fifteen minutes 
allotted to them. Poets should consider these time constraints when 
deciding which works they want to record.

All participants must be prepared to sign a waiver to allow the 
recordings and texts to be displayed on the website 
(www.oregonpoeticvoices.org <http://www.oregonpoeticvoices.org/>). 
Please also bring paper copies of the poems and a biographical 
statement. All participants will be mailed a CD of their readings.

Recognizing the need for poetry in our lives, the Oregon Poetic Voices 
Project (OPV) began in 2010, in order to create a comprehensive digital 
archive of poetry readings that will complement existing print 
collections of poetry across the state. This sound archive is available 
online to Oregonians of all ages and geographic locations at libraries, 
in schools, at home, or visiting the State Library Poetry Room. OPV is 
funded by the Library Services and Technology Act FFY2011.

For more information, please direct any questions to Poetry Project 
Fellow, Melissa Dalton at 503-768-8190 or mdalton at lclark.edu 
<mailto:mdalton at lclark.edu>. All local poets are also welcome to 
schedule an individual appointment to record in the OPV office, located 
on the Lewis & Clark campus.
