You’re invited to Trinity’s 11th Annual Poetry Festival featuring poet Cornelius Eady. Mr. Eady is the author of several books of poetry, including the critically acclaimed Hardheaded Weather, nominated for a NAACP Image Award; Victims of the Latest Dance Craze, winner of the 1985 Lamont Prize from the Academy of American Poets; The Gathering of My Name, which was nominated for the 1992 Pulitzer Prize; and his most recent collection, The War Against the Obvious. With poet Tori Derricote, Eady is co-founder of Cave Canem, a national organization for African-American poetry and poets. He is the recipient of a NEA Fellowship in Literature, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry, a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship to Bellagio, Italy, and The Prairie Schooner Strousse Award.
A book of poems to be read at the festival is being produced. To have your submission published, email it by Thursday, May 9, to Chester Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
