Looking for another place to share your poetry with a warm, wonderful listening community?


The International Day of Listening (ILD) is an annual event, sponsored by the International Listening Association, and celebrated on the third Thursday of September. The IDL website invites recordings of "listening moments" for the website, which can be recorded and shared any time. 

Do you have poetry to share as a listening moment? Or music? Or sounds of nature? What does a listening moment mean for you? What listening moments would you like to share with the world? Consider recording your poem or other listening moment and sharing on the Listening Moments page.
