The Global Open Mic


How to find a Listing - How to Add a Listing - Listings of Weekly and Monthly Global Open Mics

What is this about?

.. ... So, wouldn't it be marvelous to have access to live streaming poetry, any time of day, any day of the week? I think many people would enjoy the opportunity so I created this page.

.. ... I'd like to list any live-streaming poetry venue from around the world so I can list them on this page. I would also like to list links of your favorite poet performing at open mic venues. If you know anyone who might be interested pass the link along. You can email me if you have any questions or ideas

.. ... While I don't know how many weekly, live-streaming, open mic poetry venues there are, I hope that together we can explore the internet, discover them, and develop this listing so anyone to hear live poetry - any time they wish!

How to find a Listing

.. ... (1) First, check what the current Universal Time is. (See below, left, or one of the links, below, right, to convert another time of your choice.)


Current Universal or Greenwich Mean Time


Here is a back up: World Time Server.

Links for converting local time to UT/GT


....
World Clock Converter (Classic)

.... The Time Zone Converter, also simple to use

.... World Time Buddy Converts multiple locations.

.... Timebie has some useful resource links.


.....
Here is detailed information about Universal or Greenwich Mean Time from Wikipedia.

.....Here are graphic resources for understanding UT/GT: Nations listed by Time Zones - Do It Yourself - Additional Time Zone Maps -  

...

.. ... (2) Second, use this table to see if there are venues active during the hour of the week you have chosen. If a cell is colored and has a link, there is at least one streaming venue which begins during that hour. Colored cells, without links, indicate streaming - perhaps from one or more sources.Links with an LS indicate live streasming and those with RL indicate links to clips recorded live.

.. ... (3) Next, select the link and you'll find the venues which start during that hour the links needed to a connect to their streaming source(s).

 Nations listed by Time Zones

This is another way to find out which time zone(s) you might be dealing with.

"Do it yourself" how to figure out UT/GMT

... To determine your UT "the hard way" use the map below, find your time zone and make note of its letter-name. Then, using the small table at the bottom right of the map, find the positive or negative value for your time zone. You can then convert your local time to UT/GMT by adding the value of a positive number or subtracting the value of a negative number to your local time.

... Here is an example, if I were in Moscow, at 12 noon local time, I would see that Moscow is in zone "C" and, since that letter has a value of -3, Moscow at 12 noon, would be 9 am, UT.

... As the host of Sacred Grounds, in San Francisco we start at about 7 pm Wednesdays. That small table has this location in "U" which is +8, therefore, the UT for Sacred grounds would be 7 pm + 8 hours, which puts its UT/GMT is 3 am on Thursday! One must be careful to understand that streaming at one time on one day means that its UT could well be on the prior or following day of the week
