Want to make sure you catch a specific poet during the 2018 Dodge Poetry Festival? Here are the specific days that each poet will be performing in Newark's Downtown Arts District.

Please note: This list will be kept up-to-date as we get closer to the Festival, but schedules are subject to change. 

Presence of an asterisk (*) indicates that poet will be participating in the evening Chancellor's reading only, so they will not be performing during the daytime.
