Really, I'm mostly interested in a couple of things: selecting my conversations on craft and seeing how the poets are grouped for the panel discussions. I'm also very keen to know who the storyteller(s) is/are, but those sessions are generally at off-times (early morning, lunch), so I probably won't have to give an activity up to attend any of them.
But hey, before we get to Dodge, there are a few other events in NJ that are worth your time and attention. Among these are:
- John J. Trause (who is hosting Baraka in Rutherford), is appearing in Hoboken at Symposia Bookstore (for the Spoken Word Series)
- BJ Ward and Donna Gelagotis are reading for the Delaware Valley Poets
Speaking of NJ, if you don't already have it bookmarked, take note of Anthony Buccino's NJ Poets and Poetry, which is rapidly becoming an invaluable resource for Garden Staters.
Back now to waiting for the Dodge program....
(updated - one event was postponed...)
