As I recently announced, I’ve been invited to read as a “Festival Poet” at the upcoming biennial 2010 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, to be held October 7th -10th at the Performing Arts Center (PAC), and environs, in Newark, NJ. I’m still so pleased and excited about that!
This week, I’m featured on the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s “Poetry Fridays” blog for Friday, July 9th. This series is alphabetically featuring the “Festival Poets.” In addition to linking to my web site and some of my longer poems on-line, the post links to one of my haibun, a haiku, and my “Three Questions” responses on Curtis Dunlap’s Tobacco Road blog.

I am honored to have been asked. It’s a wonderful poetry-party, and if you are going to be in the area, I would love to see you. (Newark is easy to get to via public transportation, and they may have shuttles to the Festival site.) I’ll be reading sometime on the weekend, sharing an hour with two other poets—time and fellow readers yet to be announced.
You can visit the Dodge Poetry Festival web site from time to time to see the updated schedule:
Four-day and weekend only tickets are available now on the site. Individual day tickets go on sale mid-August. Hope to see you there.
