2018 Fall Conference
Almost 70 members and non-members attended our Fall 2018 Conference in Stevens Point. TC Tolbert was our featured poet. The theme was “Poetry of Transition, Transformation and Revision.”
On Saturday, TC lead a workshop after lunch and read his poetry as the conference finale with painter-performer Andrew Linskens.
Contest Coordinators Joan and Jeff Johannes also announced contest winners for all categories of the TRIAD: Poet’s Choice, Theme and Kay Saunders Memorial New Poet.
Friday Night Wisconsin Poet Laureate Karla Huston hosted a discussion with members about creating memory cafes, along with the traditional open mic.
Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets also made possible for TC to give a student “Poet Talk,” held on campus Friday evening at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The event was coordinated by Pat Dyjak, in partnership with the Department of English & the Faculty Staff, Gender Sexuality Alliance, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
