Write On the River: Settle in along the beautiful Rock River in Fort Atkinson from May 11-13, 2023 to write the letters, poems, or novel you never have time to work on! Meet other writers and poets and experience a variety of writing and poetry themed events on Saturday, May 13, including a reading from Wisconsin Poet Laureate Nick Gulig. Bring the kids and create sidewalk chalk poems, take photos in front of the downtown poetry murals, experience street poet Paul Wiegel's "on-demand poems" during Saturday's farmers market, and more. This is all in honor of famed poet Lorine Niedecker's 120th birthday. Thank you to The Hoard Historical Museum, Dwight Foster Public Library, Fort Atkinson Area Chamber of Commerce, Friends of Lorine Niedecker organization and others for your collective effort to bring forth this event.
