A Global Open Mic

"
. Hear ye; hear ye!

. .In cooperation with Creative Ideas - Dr.Dan - and The Global Poetry Network - we present:

 

The Global Open Mic
"If no one will give us one, we may as well make it ourselves!




. . .. . .. . . . .. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. .. .. . .. . What's this about?... - the networking of live-streaming poetry venues from around the world - and -

. .. . .. .. .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. . . - assisting poets, hosts, and venues to cooperate so as to benefit our global civilization!

. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. . .. .. .. . While you can explore and read .About Going Global - How to visit a Venue - The Calendar - and - The Listings - - -

. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. . .. .. .. . This short video, The Global Open Mic, shows how to find great poetry - at convenient times - 24 /- 7

. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. .. .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. . If you wish to suggest changes use this link: Add - Edit - Replace - or - Remove a Listing


. . .. . .. .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. . What will come of this effort?

. .. . .. .. .. . .. .
. . .. . .. . .. .. .. . . .. . .. .. .. . First, by cooperating, finding venues, and networking, we'll build community and support one another - Poetry for the People!

. .. . .. .. .. . .. . .
. . .. .. .. . .. . .. . . .. . .. .. .. Then, through venues, we'll create The Poet's Poll, find our voice, as poets, weigh in on issues, and clarify values; it could be done: iVote



.
. . About Going Global:

. . ... . ... .. . ... . ..... . ... . . ... . . .Having a 24 hour format helps everyone find events in the 24-7, World-Wide, community of poets, venues, and events!

. . ... . ... .. . ... . ..... . ... . . ... . . .Because we're global, venues are organized by their day of the week, and local start time, which is converted to Universal Time (UTC)
. . ... . ... .. . ... . ... . . ... . ... . . ...Be aware of time zones and seasonal time changes - for clarification see: Universal Time

. . How to visit a venue:

.. .

1 * Find venues, active at the moment, see the Universal Time display -> -> ->

.. . ... . ... . - Go to The Calendar, find the day and scroll to the hour, then -
.. . ... . ... . if there is a link - select it.

.. . ... . ... ... - Venue listings provide contact information.

.. . ... . ... . - If there is no link, no venues start that hour; this then means
.. . ... . ... . you'll need to plan a visit - see #2:

2 * To plan a visit, decide on a convenient day and time.

.. . ... . ... . - First, convert the time to UTC using the time converter. -> -> ->

.. . ... . ... . - Be sure to select its 24 hour option.

.. . ... . ... . - Enter your time zone or city in the lower left
.. . ... . ... . - your local time will show in the box above it.

.. . ... . ... . - Then, in the lower right box, enter UTC
.. . ... . ... . - your time, converted to UTC, will appear above it

.. . ... . ... . - Go to The Calendar, find the day, and scroll to the hour, then -
.. . ... . ... . if there is a link - select it, if there's no link try a different time.

3 * To find a particular person or place:

.. . ... . ... . - One can use a browser's text search function to find specific
.. . ... . ... . persons, places, or venues.


For a back up display: World Time Server

. ... . . ... . . . . . . Some nations change their time from March to November -
. ... . . ... . . . . . . for venues in those nations, one should search the hour prior
. ... . . ... . . . . . . to the time shown above.

.
The Calendar - and how to read it

. * Yellow cells with a link and "LS" indicate Live Streaming venues start that hour --

.. * Yellow cells with a link and "RL" indicate archives of poets Recorded Live - you'll also see this marker in the listing:

Daily 24 - 7


.. * Yellow cells without links indicate earlier venues may be still active so you may have to plan a visit - a white cell indicates no active venues - so you will have to plan a visit.....

Host/Contact:
Cortney Collins: grasshoppa@yahoo.com

"We change the Zoom link weekly to safeguard against Zoombombing, as a few of our members have experienced traumatic
Zoombombings elsewhere.

Our Face book group, Zoem Poetry Open Mic:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/315364949630804 Please answer the
questions or we will assume you are a bot:

We disseminate everything via our Zoem-specific email list (65 members at present) and the Face book group. This includes the link to the weekly
Google doc signup sheet, disseminated Mondays, and the weekly Zoom link, sent out Fridays. We send both in both places, for the non-social media people.

Our only guidelines are:
1) No hate or hate speech whatsoever--all the "isms" and "phobias" we are all aware of, 2) Zoem is a kindness & encouragement
only space (no feedback on our work, constructive or otherwise), and
3) 5-minute time slots. We do bring poetry with adult themes liberally, and have been known
to share works with F-bombs, for example, so attendance by minors (18 and under) is discouraged. Please email me to get on the list to receive all relevant links.

I hosted every Friday until about mid-October 2020, and then handed the venture off to the community. We now rotate hosting duties. Anyone interested is more than
welcome and encouraged to host. The host is also responsible for bringing a prompt on Fridays, with which we build our collective poem, our Zoetry, as it's come to be
called, in the chat room. Curation and editing of the weekly Zoetry is also on a rotating, volunteer basis, and is a lot of fun!"

About Coordinated Universal Time:

Venues are listed by their Universal Time, UTC, which is based on their local standard time. Because some nations change their time, March to November, to find venues in those nations, during that period, one must search the hour prior to the time shown above. To see which ntions change time seasonally use these two simple maps

See these links for more detailed explanations:..... UTC city and country mapping..... World Time Buddy: Converts between locations..... Timebie: for UTC-GMT Resources


Add - Edit - Replace - or - Remove a Listing:

There are two kinds of listings: Live Streaming, (LS) for venues with a scheduled time and Recorded Live, (RL) for archives of recordings made at the venue and available for viewing. A venue may have both kinds listings. I place copies of RL listings in otherwise open spaces so as to encourage visitors to seek out its related live channel.

....... .To add a venue please email with some or all of these items, I either research what is needed or contact the host to create a listing.

............... ............... Line 1: Venue's Name - City - Nation - Language(s) - the local start time and day - and UTC if you know it
............... ............... Line 2: Host(s) who to contact and how
............... ............... Line 3: Links for streaming, social media, instructions in order to participate, as well as a description of the venue

............... ............... If you host a venue and have and have an archive of publicly available recordings (RL) - I'll add this your venue's listing:

............... ............... Line 1: Venue's Name - City - Nation - Language(s)
............... ............... Line 2: the link to the source(s) of recordings and a note as to how one accesses them, if needed.

........ ........ .To edit a listing send an email with the name, day, and time of the listing - as well as the changes you'd like to make.

........ ........ .To Remove a listing: The host or organization advises me, and I remove the listing.
