The annual Poetry Marathon is the living embodiment of Woodland Pattern's community legacy. Go to it. Take part in history. 

                        -Nick Demske, curator of the BONK! performance series in Racine and author of Nick                                Demske (Fence Books, 2011)

It’s time once again for Woodland Pattern Book Center’s annual day-long celebration of poetry and performance in Milwaukee and beyond. This year’s marathon, the 21st annual, will take place on Saturday, January 31, 2015, on which day hundreds of poets, writers, and lovers of the arts will set up camp at the book center and indulge in 15 hours of literary revelry. The event will run from 10 am through midnight, and will feature 150 poets and writers from Milwaukee and environs. All are welcome to participate, we only ask that each performer raise at least $35 in pledges; though we encourage participants to raise as much as they can!. All of the money raised will support Woodland Pattern’s 2015 programming in literature and the arts, including our afterschool program and youth summer camp.  

For additional information or to sign up as a performer, call us at 414-263-5001 or stop by the book center at 720 E. Locust Street in Riverwest.


To underwrite an hour of the Marathon contact Amanda Ngoho Reavey at amandar@woodlandpattern.org.
