from the About section of Whale Sound written by Nic Sebastian:
"...This project is my response to that suggestion, helped greatly along the way by Dave Bonta’s generous technical and creative assistance. My idea is 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 this blog, and Whale Sound is also available as a free downloadable iTunes podcast (click here to subscribe). 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.
As I said 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.
