Join us for Woodland Pattern Book Center’s 22nd Annual Poetry Marathon & Benefit!
This day-long celebration of poetry and performance in Milwaukee and beyond will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2016. At the end of January, 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 Saturday morning until 1 AM on Sunday, 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 2016 programming in literature and the arts, including our Lynden Sculpture Garden Writer-in-Residence and our Urban Youth Literary Arts Program.
