Cambridge Poet Populist Jean-Dany Joachim
2009-2010

Poet Populist Jean-Dany Joachim

Jean-Dany Joachim grew up among poets in his native Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Jean-Dany wrote his first poem at age 14. His writing found its voice in the never-ending, complex reality of his country. After moving to the United States nearly two decades ago, he began writing in English, while at the same time exploring poetry in other languages. Jean-Dany has translated poetry from and into: Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, and English. As the creator and producer of the City Night Reading Series, he brings together poets, writers, performers and lovers of literature for the celebration of the art of word in the Boston and NYC areas. Jean-Dany was a 2007 finalist for the first Cambridge Poet Populist. He is the author of Chen Plenn – Leta, and his work has appeared in anthologies and numerous literary magazines. Jean-Dany’s mantra is: La vie est belle!
