16th Annual Poetry Marathon Benefit Reading

Saturday, January 30, 2010
10am till 1am

Every year, on the last Saturday of January, over 125 poets, writers, and performers show their support for Woodland Pattern by participating in its Annual Poetry Marathon & Benefit. Each writer presents five minutes of work to a packed house and raises pledge money benefiting Woodland Pattern programming.

Hundreds of people faithfully turn out for this vibrant community event. Last year's Marathon drew an audience of over 500 people, and featured over 125 readers from across the nation. Through the funds brought in by each reader and the generosity of donors, we were able to further support programming for Woodland Pattern during the calendar year of 2009. We expect to have another great turnout in 2010 and hope that you can be a part of our legacy!

Participating in the Marathon is one way you can invigorate the literary arts community in Milwaukee. It is not too late to sign up to read, become a donor, or bring a friend along to witness the action. Hope to see you on the 30th, your spirit and energy is important as we kick off another year of great poetry and art at Woodland Pattern.

Call 414-263-5001 to sign up! As of Dec. 23, 35 spots remain but they're filling up quickly!

Readers: please print and fill out the Sponsor Pledge Form.
