Global Open Mics!

*Be aware that many of the venues require prerequisites, checking web pages, getting email, registering. I do not post Zoom information. Also some nations have seasonal time changes such as Daylight Savings time in the United States and British Summer Time, in England.

* LS indicates a Live Streaming source, while LS/L indicates a live streaming source one can listen to only
* RL indicates a source that was recorded live; please note some cells have both.

* Cells that are yellow, without links, indicate times when one or more open mics may be continuing even though they started earlier.

* Note: the row for 0200, has a complete Horizontal Ring Reading - readings scheduled the same time of day during a week.
* While Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and Sunday are halfway or more for an entire day of events.

Survivors' Poetry was created in 1991 to promote the writing of Survivors of mental distress.

We draw connections between writing and performing poetry and mental well-being
