Dodge Poetry Festival -- One Week to Go!
I am over-the-moon excited about the Dodge Poetry Festival. Just one week away.
What does this weekend mean to me? Look at this fabulous lineup of poets and artists:
Janet E. Aalfs
Tracy K. Smith
Charles H. Johnson
J. C. Todd
Skye Van Saun
Joseph O. Legaspi
Betty Bonham Lies
Thomas Sayers Ellis
Naomi Shihab Nye
Luke Warm Water
Beth Ann Fennelly
C. D. Wright
Nina Israel Zucker
The biggest problem I have at Dodge is deciding which session to see because they're always interesting and funny and thought-provoking and reaffirming. And in such a heated political season, I can't wait to hear how poets are responding.
So I have two questions for you.
- Are you attending Dodge this year? Be sure to say hello (unless you're creepy).
- And from this list, who do you recommend that I see? Which poets should I move heaven and earth to see? Doesn't matter if they are emerging or established poets, I'm open to all artists.
