His work has appeared in Silver Birch Press, Temenos, SPRY Lit, Ball, and Airways Magazine, and he is the author/editor (as Penny Farthing) of Alice’s Adventures in #Wonderland — a gentle update of the Lewis Carroll classic for the digital age.

Only We Can Help Prevent ZOOM BOMBING!!!

Only We Can Help Prevent ZOOM Bombing

I’m reminded of the Smokey the
Bear commercial from years past:

“Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires”

I want to start a campaign:

“Only We Can Help Prevent Zoom Bombing”

Social Distancing will be around for a while. I expect we will need to interact over social media venues for poetry events. This includes Zoom and I wouldn’t be surprised if hackers found a way to infiltrate other Cloud Venues as well.

I have hosted 5 events online. I was bombed only once. I implemented several principles for hosting a meeting on ZOOM and I was successful after that. But I know the Zoom-bomber “Empire Strikes Back.” Therefore,

We (curators and attendees) Can Help Prevent ZOOM Bombing!

Here’s how we can help:

A.) Curators can use a registration system. Email list or Eventbrite. (I use both) if the name is not on the list, they cannot enter.

B.) Attendees, please use the registration process. If needed, ask friends (who use registration) for help.

C.) When logging on to the ZOOM event, try to use the name that you registered with.

D.) Try not to share the ZOOM link. Send everyone to registration.

E.) Hold practice sessions (preferably not 5 minutes before an event) with your friends, your family members & your poetry peers

F.) to the ZOOM Bombers, who somehow, got their hands on this post – May Your Empire Come Down!!! In the meantime, go and social distance yourself somewhere off the planet or Preferably OFFLINE!!!

Friends – Only We Can Help Prevent ZOOM Bombing!!!

On Break!

On Break

From May to June, I planned and hosted 5 Poets, Writers & Storytellers Online stages! All were successful, though I was Zoom-Bombed on event #2. I recovered and the all-day Norwalk Art Festival & Poetry/Storytellers stage at the end of June was sweet icing on the cake.

In addition to that I performed host duties for great weather for MEDIA ( greatweatherformedia.com ) by twice selecting poem of the week all while preparing 2 epic poems to send to annual contests held
by both Rattle and Narrative.

Needless to say, it is break time. I plan to drive down south tomorrow to see family. I will be out of pocket and a little offline for a bit. I plan to show up again in a couple of weeks for the late summer and early fall of 2020 with new poetry, new online events and much more!

Until then, Take Care & Be Safe!!!
