.What is this about?

.. ... Wouldn't it be marvelous to have access to live streaming poetry, any time of day, any day of the week? I think poets would enjoy such an opportunity, so I created this page. While I don't know how many weekly, live-streaming, open mic poetry venues there are, I hope we can explore the world, discover them, and develop this directory so that it will be easy to find such venues! Then anyone will be able to hear live poetry any time they wish.
. .

. ....
.. ...
I have organized this directory using Universal Time (Here's an explanation) or Greenwich Mean Time, which is displayed to the right. If you .. ... need it, this link provides another online display: https://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx

"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. If you need them here are some other time zone maps, and this a link to a list of nations sorted by their time zones.

... 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.
