Take part in Shared Stories


We have drawn up a list with a selection of texts from works in the public domain by women writers in various languages.

All the texts we suggest are short and not subject to copyright, so you can share your readings with other users and reach as many people as possible.

If you want to read a text that's not on our list, you must first make sure that it is in the public domain. Write to us through the Contact section of the registration page and we can confirm it. 

It is important that you begin your recording of the text by saying your name and surname, the title of the book and your reference library (UOC Library, UCJC Library, etc.).

The audio must be shared in mp3 format, preferably 128 kbps.

You must have registered for the campaign and have accepted its legal conditions beforehand. After you have done this, you can send the recording using this form (you will need to log in to your Gmail account).

We will review it and gradually upload the readings to the campaign website.

Yes, after they have been published, all the recordings will be available for everyone to listen to under a Creative Commons licence.

You can listen to other participants' audio readings on the campaign page.

The aim of the Relatos Compartidos (Shared Stories) campaign is to encourage reading, raise the profile of women writers, and foster the active participation of users through audio readings.

You can share them with your friends and followers on social media using the campaign's official hashtag, #RelatosCompartidos. This will help to spread the word about the campaign and raise awareness of all the participants' stories.

The first campaigns were specifically aimed at library staff and information science students. The third campaign is also open to users of the libraries. So at the UOC, the entire university community can take part. 

There is no problem if you decide to record more than one. If you do, please tell us the texts you want to read in the field "What text do you want to read?" on the campaign registration form.
