About the event

Woodland Pattern’s most highly anticipated annual event, the Poetry Marathon is a two-day, 24-hour lyrical extravaganza with performances from 300+ individual poets, musicians, and moving image artists from Milwaukee and around the globe. All 24 hours of the Poetry Marathon will be livestreamed via Crowdcast. 10:00 AM-10:00 PM January 27 and 28. 

In addition to being an extraordinary event and beloved tradition for poets of all ages, the Poetry Marathon serves as a community-driven fundraiser. Participating poets are asked to raise a small amount of funds among family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc., and/or via social media, with a goal of $50 in pledges on each reader’s behalf. Those contributions are then matched by a sponsor for the hour and supplemented by major sponsorships. Thanks to our community, funds raised through the Marathon each January have kept Woodland Pattern going strong for decades, providing fuel for all our programmatic activities in the year ahead. 

I co-curated the Latinx Poetry Hour with Roberto Harrison (1/27 5:15-6:00 PM, and I curated the Matrix Hour (my women's writing group) (1/28, 2-3 PM) with which I am reading this year. See full schedule here:  Woodland Pattern Poetry Marathon Schedule
