Group Poetry Reading in celebration of International Mother Language Day presented by Write On, Door County in partnership with Chippewa Valley Writers Guild, Driftless Writing Center, Lake Superior Writers, Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets, Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission, and Woodland Pattern.
Participating readers are people based here in Wisconsin whose first language is not English, and who will present poems in their mother tongue. International Mother Language Day promotes awareness of cultural and linguistic diversity, and this reading extends that awareness to the poets and writers based here in Wisconsin. This event also invites people to discover a deeper appreciation for poetry through relying first on the rhythm and music of poems as the devices that move you, rather than on the words themselves.
