Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (WFOP) is a non-profit organized around reading, writing, and advocating poetry. WFOP was created exclusively for literary purposes with the hope that Wisconsin could become more aware and appreciative of our poets and poetic heritage. Our mission in more detail can be summarized as follows:

  • To secure fuller recognition of poetry as one of the important forces making for a higher civilization and to create a finer appreciation of poetry by the public at large.
  • To help Wisconsin poets through seminars, constructive feedback and study to perfect their work.
  • To encourage the study of poetry in the schools of the state.

A poem is a complete little universe.
— William Carlos Williams
