I think it is the guest host's job to create or post the link. I just verify that our calendar is clear for your preferred time slot, and you have clearance for sure for this Sunday 3 p.m. CST. I look forward to attending and have a few poems ready. I hope some others show up for our first ever Librivox Cafe Poetry Slam. When the announcement is posted, I'll go over the the Poetry projects and give a heads up for the event. :D

That's 9pm the same day, GMT, from the time calculator that I've looked at.

I should be able to be there.

This is a work in progress, Tricia. What we need is an invitation with a Join Link in it.
Bill is the test case to be sure a guest host can generate such a code using Phil's account. Let him do it, please. He and I were supposed to hook up today to practice, but he got sidetracked with family stuff. Maybe tomorrow.
Then you or Phil can Post it to the Announcement Thread. :)

Yes, the sign-on for attendees to use to join the group.
I'll be posting that later this evening after picking up my granddaughter from a teen meeting down in Naples.

Thanks again.

Looking forward to this. I actually managed to put together a poem for this Zoom event. It’s a good thing I don’t write poems for a living. I would starve to death. :)

Tricia, will you please post Bill's notice to the Announcement Thread. I've sent it over to the Fortnightly Poetry Suggestions forum, too.

Are listeners welcome to this one? I never have been very good at writing poetry, to the point where i simply refused to write it at school :lol: however, if i'm free at that time i wouldn't mind observing, if that's allowed :D

Enjoyed today’s session. I didn’t mention it at the time as we were busy, but Peter mentioned recording “Hiawatha”. Several years ago I downloaded it for my mother-in-law, who liked the poem. She was losing her eyesight and wanted to listen to it. I put it in Audacity and connected the poem together, editing out all the introductions, etc. She said she enjoyed listening to it a lot. Thank you, Peter. :)

Hope more people join us at the next session.
