It is my pleasure to announce that as of this past Saturday at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival in Newark NJ, Kwame Dawes will be our Winter 2011 judge. Below is a webography, but just a start of one. If you would like a brief intro to him, then scroll down to the section called "Interviews and conversations with Kwame" and click on the PBS video. If you would like to spend over an hour listening to him read his poems, then in that same section, click on the Lannan Foundation link. If you are interested in his bibliography, or the many awards he has received (besides a Forward Prize and an Emmy), then in the section called "Kwame''s web sites and pages", click on the University of South Carolina link. If you want to get lost in a remarkable web site that he has put together, then click on the first link below, the one called "Hope". Of course, that isn''t the half of what is below, and what is below isn''t the half of what is on the web about Kwame Dawes.

When I ran into Kwame on Saturday afternoon in Newark, in requesting that he judge for the InterBoard Poetry Community, I offered him to be a monthly judge or to be our annual judge for 2010-11. (It''s great to have these conversation in person.) He said I should choose. My response was that I would love it if he would spend three months with us. And we exchanged e-mail addresses and phone numbers. Besides all of his accomplishments, he is a great guy too. But that comes out in the links below. You''ll see.

Follow this link for the links that go to this announcement:
