Atlanta-based poet Alice Shapiro has partnered with Evoca to enable winners and nominees of the literary Pushcart Prize to share their spoken words online. Authors’ voices are recorded and podcast as MP3 files using Evoca’s phone-to-web services. Featured poets include Elena Karina Byrne, Bryan Borland, Alice Shapiro, Ray Sharp, Cassie Premo Steele, Lynne Thompson, Bobbie Troy, and Lorraine A. Vail. The interviews also are available online at Shapiro’s Evoca account for listening and downloading for non-commercial use. Anyone interested in automatically saving new recordings to iTunes or a computer file can subscribe to The Change Interviews RSS feed.
