Hi, and welcome to Elocutionists! Our goal is to let DeviantART literature be heard, lending a voice to poetry and prose and showcasing the art of the spoken word. You can find all our readings on our Wordpress blog, or look through our gallery to see the pieces we've read.

If you have stories or poems you'd like to hear read aloud, or spoken word pieces you want to promote, join us! You'll find our submission guidelines below.

Enjoy your stay!

Submitting to the Group Favorites

If you have a piece you'd like someone to read, submit it to the appropriate folder (poetry or prose) in the Group Favorites. You can submit one piece (under 1000 words, please) per week.

Submitting to the Group Gallery

Once your piece is read and posted on our blog, just add the reading link to your artist comments and submit the piece to the appropriate folder in our gallery. If you've done a poetry or prose reading you'd like to promote, submit it to the "Read by Our Members" folder.

Want to Read for Us?

The more the merrier! If you want to become a part of our team and read submissions to the group faves, just give us the links to a few readings you've done--on YouTube, Tumblr, SoundCloud, or anywhere else. We'll invite you to become a Contributor and you'll get your own folder in our gallery.



Fine Print of Doom

:bulletblue: By submitting your work to our group faves, you're giving us permission to read it aloud and post the resulting recording on our Wordpress blog. We will, of course, notify you when we do, and link back to the original deviation and your dA page. :)

:bulletblue: If you have an issue with a recording we've done of your piece, please note me (disrhythmic) or the group and we'll put it to rights. ^^

:bulletblue: We'll try our hardest to read anything that gets submitted to the faves, but do keep in mind that we have lives outside the internet NaNoWriMo is going on we can get busy from time to time. Thanks for your patience. :)

Hello! I have a question. Can anybody submit others' works to the favourites so that they'll be read without the authors knowing??? Because I came here to submit my "What is Left", but then , to my big surprise, it was already in the prose favourites... :confused: And I don't remember doing that. :D

I think so. Anyway, we alert the person whose work it is before we read it to ascertain their permission again.

So we submit the poetry or prose with the link of us reading already in the artist's comments. Do you recommend any sound recording program or site besides youtube?

Audacity for the recording and SoundCloud.com for the uploading. That's what I use.

Some of us use SoundCloud, others use Tumblr, and a couple use Wordpress. :) As for the recording program itself, I recommend Audacity. It's free and pretty powerful, too. ^^

There are a bunch of Voice Acting groups, but I think we might be the first spoken word group.

If I read one, should I put it up on my tumblr and link y'all and then you can just swipe it from there? :)
