SAVE THE DATE: THE NEXUS CAFE™ ~ In conversation with Natasha Head about online poetry connections and community


logoJoin us for a chat about online poetry connections and community … and THE POET BY DAY: for everyone who eats, sleeps and breathes poetry and wishes poetry was their day job …

On 28 February 2016, Sunday, at 2:00 p.m. ET

3 p.m. AT – 1 p.m. CT – 12 p.m. MT – 11 p.m. PT

THE POET BY DAY is in the process of reinvention, transitioning to an information hub on all things poesy with special – but not exclusive – light on:

  • global poetry initiatives for peace, sustainability and social justice
  • she-poets
  • minority poets
  • poets just finding their voices in maturity

The complete Mission for The Poet by Day is in the blogroll to your left.

My thanks to Natasha Head (Tashtoo Parlour) and Roger Allen Baut (Chasing Tao) for the opportunity talk about community building and what this particular site has to offer you.

THE CREATIVE NEXUS™ produces two Internet radio shows: Blue Sky Highway™ and the Nexus Cafe™ on Blog Talk Radio. Blue Sky Highway is also available on Soundcloud. Past episodes of both shows are archived at Blog Talk Radio and Soundcloud. Roger and Natasha tell me that a separate Nexus Café Soundcloud account is in the works.

“The Creative Nexus is NOT just about sharing your own work with the world…it’s about sharing everyone else’s! We are a group of artists, writers, artisans, musicians and more. Many of us have to reconcile the real world with our passions, and it’s nice to know you’ve got a supportive community behind you when one of those real world wrenches steals time from your online promotion and sharing of your work.

“Together we will reach higher than we have ever dreamed, and in that same mission, we ask YOU to share us with YOUR world. Please feel free to use the logo below and post to your site or space with a link back to us. It’s a huge good karma wheel we hope to get rolling, and in the spirit of the NWCU we welcome you as a spoke in that wheel.”

Natasha Head and Roger Allen Baut
