Virtual spoken word poetry events are a fantastic way to experience the power of spoken and written words. As someone who loves poetry, I recommend you attend virtual spoken word poetry events from home, or anywhere you can access the Internet. It’s an effective way to broaden your artistic horizons.
One great thing about virtual poetry events is that they often feature poets from all over the world. This makes it possible to hear from artists you might not have access to otherwise. In addition, you can listen to poets perform their work live, interact with them, and ask questions during Q&A sessions. Have you tried a virtual open mic? Due to the pandemic and social distancing practices, virtual spoken word poetry open mics are on the rise! Virtual open mics allow you to perform your poetry and see your favorite performance poets in the safety of your home.
The Great Weather For Media Wednesday’s 10-Minute Reading is a virtual spoken word poetry event that features renowned poets and authors. The readings are streamed live to their Facebook page, and you may register to watch directly on Zoom. Registration for Zoom viewing is available through Eventbrite. Be sure to register before 7:15 pm EST on the event day.
Another benefit of attending virtual poetry events is that they are typically more accessible than in-person events. You don’t have to worry about transportation, parking, or dressing up. All you need is a computer or phone and an Internet connection, and you can enjoy the event from the comfort of your own home.
