Thursday Thirteen

13 Real Live Poets

 (6 Pairs and a Solo)

I’m off to the Brattleboro Literary Festival this weekend, & I’m looking forward to hearing lots of fine poetry. Here’s a random sample I’m planning on, though there are lots of other options, so I’m trying to keep my schedule pretty loose, because there are only about a gazillion other presenters / panelists / workshops to be considered. Not to mention Saturday night’s Open Mic at the River Garden…

Here’s my plan at present:

Carolyn Forche and David Thomas Martinez
Steph Burt and Denise Duhamel
Major Jackson and Jill Bialosky
Andrea Cohen and Gail Mazur
David Rivard and Maggie Dietz
Open Mic (I might read…)

Dede Cummings and April Ossman
Charles Simic
(Panel: “Poetry of Witness”): Forche, Jackson, Simic, Sealey

Going Away? Go HERE First!
