Jean Dany voted Poet Populist for Cambridge!!!!!!
GREAT NEWS!!! NETT's own Jean Dany Joachim has been voted the Poet Populist for Cambridge this year! It is a tremendous honor for JD and we are all VERY proud of him.
For more information, see the Cambridge Arts Council's web site here. You can read JD's biography (a story all its own!) and some of his poetry.
For those of you looking to hear JD read part of the infamous Loquacious Dog poem, you can watch it here. Boy, what a story!
If you want to catch JD in person, he'll be formally accepting his honor from the Mayor of Cambridge at the Cambridge River Festival this weekend. There will be a Poet Populist tent with readings all day and JD will receive his honor at 3 pm.
