Within the schedule, there are types of events separated into color-coded categories. This will allow you the option to see only Readings, Poets on Poetry, On Craft, Poetry and Music, Poets Forum events, etc.
You can make a To-Do list within the app, to which you can bookmark any poets, restaurants, venues etc. that you would like to visit during your time in Newark.
The Poets & Performers section will feature an alphabetical list of each poet performing at the Festival, and will have a photo, biography, and that poet's reading schedule, all with the function of being able to bookmark each individual poet to your To-Do list.
Within the Venue section, each location will be highlighted with a description, and featured on a Google Map for easy visiting.
