Lillian here, delighted to host OLN LIVE today AND on Saturday! See below for links to join us. You can join at any point within the time frame noted. PLEASE NOTE: MY COMPUTER IS SOMETIMES A MINUTE OR TWO SLOW: BE PATIENT AND I WILL ADMIT YOU VIA THE LINKS BELOW.

Click below to join us LIVE on THURSDAY, February 16th from 3 to 4 PM, EST.

Click below to join us LIVE on SATURDAY, February 18th from 10 to 11 AM, EST.


Open Link Night is
an opportunity to post any one poem of your choosing on Mr. Linky below. There is no required form, length, or topic.

Open Link Night LIVE involves the same process EXCEPT we invite you to meet poets from around the globe by signing into a LIVE session, complete with video and audio. Folks can read aloud one poem of their choosing to the group tuned in. You can read the poem you posted to Mr. Linky below or a different one OR you can just come to listen.

Because of popular demand, we now offer OLN LIVE once a month on Thursday and the following Saturday, which means we can be more inclusive of time zones around the globe. Join us at one session or both. The more the merrier! Read the same poem at both sessions; read at one and listen at the other; or read one poem on Thursday and a different poem on Saturday. Please note however, you may still post only one poem at Mr. Linky below. And of course, if, for whatever reason, you choose not to join us live, you may still share a poem on Mr. Linky below.

I usually participate in dVerse from our high-rise condo in Boston, but we’re escaping winter for two months in Southern California’s San Diego. If it takes a few moments for me to “let you in” to the live session, please be patient. Be sure you’ve connected on the right day’s link above, and then know, I’ll be there as quickly as possible. Sometimes the internet connection in our California rental is a bit obstinate.

Me and my friends in the photo below are waiting to see your poem posted to Mr. Linky below and hopefully I’ll see you at one or both of our LIVE sessions!

New to dVerse?  Need to be refreshed on the rules?

Here’s what to do:

  • Post a poem of your choice to your blog AND add the exact URL for your poem to Mr. Linky below.
  • REMEMBER to either TAG dVerse in your post, or include a link at the end of your poem that leads readers back to dVerse (https://dversepoets.com). 
  • If you do not TAG or include a link to dVerse at the end of your post, I will gently remind you to do so. After all, this will increase your readership and comments, and others will find dVerse and hopefully join in the fun. If you do not add the TAG or link after my reminder, I will remove your post from Mr. Linky. I do not want to do that! So please do include the TAG or link!
  • AND – we hope you’ll join us LIVE as well, by clicking on the appropriate link above. Remember to be patient: it may take me a moment or two to admit you to the LIVE session.
