For four days every autumn, the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival transforms Newark’s vibrant downtown Arts District into a poetry village featuring some of our most celebrated, diverse and vibrant poets and spoken word artists. The autumnal festival offers four days of poetry readings, panel discussions, conversations on craft and a wide array of other topics, musical performances, and storytelling.

The Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival took place on October 18-21, 2018.
