Mark Doty, Kate Bornstein, Alex Sanchez, Daphne Gottlieb, Ed Madden, Kate Evans, and Dan Vera
I'm delighted to see a number of poets on the bill who are connected to the magazine I edit, including remarkable Mark Doty (who is judging our James White Poetry Prize in its inaugural year) and the treasured Ed Madden whose work we've published in the magazine and whose new book Signals is just out from University of South Carolina Press (it's a fantastic book). I've heard from a few other poets who've been invited to read and the ATLQLF site mentions that more will be announced so I'll wait to note them till they're officially listed.
Yours truly appears at the bottom of the list and let's just say I'm over the moon to be in such cherished company.
The dates for the fest are Oct. 15 -19 at various locations to be announced around the city.
Sounds like a festival to add to your Fall calendar!
