Join the Neopoet online poetry workshop and community to improve as a writer, meet fellow poets, and showcase your work. Sign up, submit your poetry, and get started.

We need people who can teach people to record their poetry live.

This is becoming ever more important to Neopoet. If you know how to record your own voice reading your poetry, know how to enhance the sound (it usually needs it) with Audacity or similar program and then upload it to SoundCloud or Vocaroo or similar site, or video for YouTube, Neopoet has accounts at SoundCloud and YouTube, please let us know.
Chris (vandiemenspeak) runs our audio and we need people not just to record your own and other people's poetry but especially to teach others how to do it.
Can you help? Will you?
Let us know, please.
cheers
Jess

Everyone that uses Neopoet (should) have access to and be able to use Google. All they have to do is search "how to ____" and they can learn almost anything. It takes seconds to do a search. Then be willing to learn by following tutorials. That's all. If they don't have that, most people should be able to access a public library where librarians (usually the reference/research librarian) can help find any number of instructional guides in print or online to do the same thing as these links above describe. I know these are not necessarily fair answers, but it's all I have right now.

Critique, don't comment. Neopoet is a workshop and is designed to share your poetry, receive and make critique of the work posted, and most importantly, for you to evolve as a poet.

but you do more than enough already, this blog was addressed to those who complain that Neopoet should be better and how they might actually be able to do something about it.
