virtual Dodge

July 1, 2020

If you’ve ever longed to attend the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival but couldn’t quite swing a trip to Newark, New Jersey, 2020 may be your year. Festival organizers have just announced that this year’s events will stream live at no charge beginning Thursday, October 22, 2020. (Performances on-demand will be available for a nominal subscription fee.)

As usual, the Festival will feature individual and group poetry readings and performances, conversations and panel talks among several poets, and Q&A with Festival poets. Though many of the details are still being worked out, there is already an impressive list of confirmed poets. Stay tuned!

LiTFUSE 2020, virtually

June 24, 2020

The wonderful late-September gathering of poets in Tieton, Washington, LiTFUSE, has announced that the show will go on, as a fully virtual program.

  • LiTFUSE 2020 will take place September 25-27. Workshops and related programming will be offered in the weeks leading up to the main event.
  • Registration fees will be reduced to $150 per person and include virtual access to all regular workshop classes. Master classes will be available for an additional fee.
  • The poetry slam and keynote events will take place virtually. In place of the poet’s banquet, there will be a digital cocktail reception for faculty and registered attendees.
  • Special accommodations for the digital environment, such as closed-captioning, printable media, etc., can be arranged.

The 2020 LiTFUSE Faculty is now listed on the site and Registration is open.

The folks at Open Books, Seattle’s all-poetry bookstore (now open for curbside pickup), have just made it a little easier for you to find virtual poetry readings and events. If you have an event to add, you’ll find an email on that page.
