Major NYC Poetry Event Dates Announced
See this post from The New York Times about two major fall poetry events, the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, and the Academy of American Poets’ Poets Forum.
From the Times article:
Poetry may make nothing happen, as W. H. Auden once wrote. But in October it will bring an unusual number of poets and poetry mavens to the greater New York area. The United States poet laureate Natasha Trethewey, the Pulitzer Prize winner C. K. Williams, the former New Jersey poet laureate Amiri Baraka and dozens of others will gather in Newark on Oct. 11-14 for the 14th Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, a biennial event that bills itself as North America’s largest poetry event. And Oct. 18-20, the American Academy of Poets will present its sixth annual Poets Forum, which will feature readings and discussions on issues like poetry and social media (the subject of a lecture by Jorie Graham), and poetry-themed walking tours of Harlem, the West Village, the Museum of Modern Art and SoHo.
