Are you ready for an all-weekend poetry intensive? I am too. The biannual Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, instead of being scrapped this year due to lack of funding, has relocated to the city of Newark. It looks to be a grand resurrection, with the return of Amiri Baraka and the usual A-list of poets (unfortunately, Billy Collins will also be there). Below is my schedule for the weekend. Expect some write-ups of the panels/discussions as well as select poets in the weeks to follow.
