from a poet who won't be at the Dodge Festival

Wendy Cope- her thoughts on poetry and process

She's one of the few poets who will not be in attendance at the Dodge Poetry Festival, where I will be from September 25th- 28th. Twenty-thousand people, that's what they expect!

I wonder how many are poets? Half? More than half??

That's way too many poets in one place.

Even if I'm one of them.

Oh constant reader, did I tell you I'll be one of the poets featured at Art After Hours at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts this coming January? It looks like Jan. 15, 2009 will be my spot.

Be there. I promise a good show!
