Poems from "Margins", the 2024 Wisconsin Poets' Calendar, presented by the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (South Region)

Meeting Rooms A and B Combined
Saturday, Nov 11, 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Join us for a free reading by regional contributing poets to the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets* 2024 Wisconsin Poets' Calendar. This year's Calendar theme is the “Margins." This year's editors state: “Margins. Those sharp edged, drop offs and boundaries that interrupt life's smooth downhill run. We wanted to explore some of the ninety degree turns and overhangs that catch us up short. We also wanted to consider those peripheries in the natural world. How standing at the edge of a divide opens our view, sheds beauty on an ordinary day.” The 2024 Wisconsin Poets’ Calendar presents interpretations of this theme by almost 200 poets, and our reading will feature over 25 poets from the South Central Region of WFOP. A limited number of calendars will be available for purchase and they can also be purchased on the 2024 Poets' Calendar store page on the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets website ( Some contributing poets will also have personal works for sale, as well.

*The Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (WFOP, is a statewide organization dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of poets and poetic heritage in the state, mentoring and supporting local poets with regular readings, workshops, conferences and other events and advocating for the study of poetry in our schools.
