This October 20-23, the Academy of American Poets will join forces with the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival to present its annual Poets Forum weekend of events as part of the festival, the nation's largest. This will include a reading by the Chancellors of the Academy of American Poets and a series of conversations between the distinguished poets.

This will be the first time that the Academy of American Poets and its Chancellors have presented events at the Dodge Poetry Festival. 
"Poetry in our country benefits from having multiple organizations championing its importance, and our organizations benefit when we share resources and opportunities. We're thrilled that the Dodge Poetry Festival has invited our Chancellors to be a part of their 30th anniversary gathering. And we're especially excited to present programming in Newark, a city led by a poet, Ras Baraka," said Jennifer Benka, executive director of the Academy of American Poets.
