April is National Poetry Month

Join WFOP on Saturday, April 27, 4:30pm CST 

Acclaimed eco-poet Nickole Brown, will read her poetry from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center Theatre in Sheboygan. The event is free and open to the public and is part of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (WFOP) 2024 conference which is being held that weekend at Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan. Book purchase and signing will follow the reading.

In her poetry, Brown explores the natural world through poems variously titled: “Why Raccoons and Squirrels Take Only One Bite of Your Tomatoes,” “Donkey Elegies,” and “Self-Portrait as Land Snail.” She received an MFA from Vermont College, studied at Oxford University, was an editorial assistant for the late Hunter S. Thompson, and worked at Sarabande Books. She taught at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the Great Smokies Writing Program at UNCA, and the Hindman Settlement School. She’s published five poetry collections and co-authored Write It! 100 Poetry Prompts to Inspire with Jessica Jacobs. She lives in Asheville, NC, where she volunteers at animal sanctuaries.

The WFOP is a non-profit dedicated to reading, writing, and advocating poetry with the hope that Wisconsin citizens can become more aware and appreciative of our poets and poetic heritage.
