Dodge Poetry Festival

The Dodge Poetry Festival occurs every two years. I missed the last one but plan on getting to this one being held in Newark, NJ.

Some of my favorite poets apparently are not scheduled to be there (Robert Bly, Billy Collins, Coleman Barks) but that just means that I'll be able to explore other voices.

One who will be there and I want to see is Kurtis Lamkin. What he does with word and music is enchanting.

Kurtis Lamkin reads 'jump mama' from on Vimeo.

One of my favorite of his performances!
