It’s time once again for our day-long celebration of poetry and performance in Milwaukee and beyond. Join the hundreds of poets, writers, and lovers of the arts who set up camp at the book center and indulge in 15 hours of literary revelry. The Poetry Marathon is a community fundraiser where readers find sponsors to pledge a minimum total of $35 on their behalf. All of the money raised supports Woodland Pattern’s 2018 programming in literature and the arts.

 

Reader registration opens on Friday, November 17th at 11 AM!!

 

 

Pledge a Reader!

To pledge a particular reader, please use the PayPal button above, call WP at 414-263-5001, or give cash or a check directly to the reader. 

 

There are many poets for whom the cost of reading in the marathon may be prohibitive. If you’d like to help these readers, consider a “pledge a reader” donation. Money received through these donations will go directly to a poet who is unable to meet the $35 minimum pledge goal. You support Woodland Pattern AND a local artist - win-win!
