Dodge Festival 2008

Waterloo Village, Stanhope, New Jersey
September 25 – September 28, 2008

The 12th Biennial Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival will be held at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, New Jersey from Thursday, September 25 through Sunday, September 28, 2008.

We invite you to join Chris Abani, Lucille Clifton, Billy Collins, Martín Espada, Ted Kooser, Maxine Kumin, Naomi Shihab Nye, Charles Simic, Franz Wright and dozens of other poets, musicians and storytellers for four days of poetry and music beside the Musconetcong River and among the Village’s lawns, trees, and historic buildings.

Please visit frequently in the coming months as new poets and performers are added to the line-up, and for updates on accommodations, opportunities for teachers and high school students, and scheduling information. Tickets will go on sale in April 2008.

Visit our brand new Dodge Poetry Festival Gift Shop to browse for anything from a mug or a tote bag to a 2006 Festival T-Shirt, all featuring our vivid new logo. The Dodge Poetry Festival Gift Shop is the only place outside of the Festival where you will find our gorgeous one-of-a-kind posters commemorating all 11 Festivals.

I will book some of my vacation time next year to be there!
