The Dodge Poetry Festival is one of the quintessential poetry events that must be attended by students and lovers of poetry at least once in their lifetime. The biennial celebration of words and famous poets has grown to epic proportions and this year is the "Woodstock for Poetry Fandom!"

Billy Collins--Yes, THE BILLY COLLINS--will be reading this year along with rock star poets: Rita Dove, Robert Pinsky, Sharon Olds, Mark Doty, Richard Blanco---and so many more!
The festival dates are October 23-26 in Newark, NJ. The poets will be speaking and reading at New Jersey Performing Arts Center and many of the surrounding historic locations. A full schedule can be found on the website. 
Information can be found at www.dodgepoetry.org and you can purchase either one day passes or a full four day pass for all the festivities. 
Local hotels are offering discounts and all of the information can be found on the Dodge website. 
Truly an event not to be missed!
