The leaves have only just begun to loosen, and yet one must prepare for the year to come. As such, I am pleased to announce that the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets has released its Wisconsin Poets’ Calendar for the year 2011. The calendar pages are filled with poetry by Wisconsin residents and – of course – plenty of room for scribbling appointments or scattered verse.
I am honored and privileged to say a poem I wrote about loons (the feathered kind) was included. I am even more tickled to say that other poets present include: at least one of my former babysitters; a guy from Chetek who was at many of the first poetry readings I ever attended some 20 years ago; the legendary Antler; downright famed poet Todd Boss, of whom I have written previously; our dear departed Norma; a “housewife” poet (spare me the emails, the joke is shared and well-burnished); and many more friends, regional mentors, and fellow scribblers.
Art for the calendar was provided by Candace Hennekens of Fall Creek, Wisconsin (yep, we share the same post office).
