Project Main Details

Poetry Reading 
Looking for someone to do a reading of my poem to put on my website.

I know I'm not paying much, so I don't expect anything special other than a read. But I am looking for an "interesting" read... something with some thought and emotion in it, but I can't really provide much direction.

There aren't many restrictions to this project, as it's just something I want to post on my website. The time I specified was just how long it takes me to say it out loud, but you can go over or under as you see fit. I don't need any special editing, as I can do that myself. So if you feel you have a couple different ways you could do a stanza, I'm open to that. Just try to make sure all takes are done to similar volume/tone/etc.

In fact, I would like to see if possible, two reads of the last stanza.. My original interpretation of the poem was sadness/futility, but others have interpreted it to be one of hope, so it'd be interesting to hear both. But if you do only one, I think I would prefer the one of sadness/futility.

Again, don't worry about editing. You can put it all in one file or multiple files.

Let me know if you would like your name in the credits.

Script Details

am looking for an "interesting" read... something with some thought and emotion in it, but I can't really provide much direction.
If providing a custom demo, you can pick any stanza from my poem. But the last one I think has the most punch:

"I go home
It reminds me,
The beating never stops…
The beating of my heart."
