Woodland Pattern’s Annual Poetry Marathon Fundraiser
January 27 @ 10:00 am - January 28 @ 1:00 am$10
Starting at 10:00 AM on January 27th hundreds of poets, writers and lovers of the arts will
set up camp at Woodland Pattern Book Center. Fifteen hours later they will leave exhausted yet also
refreshed! It’s time, once again, for Woodland Pattern’s day-long celebration of poetry and performance!
Indulge in 15 hours of literary revelry and join us for Woodland Pattern’s Annual Poetry Marathon. This is a
perfect opportunity for those new to poetry or new to Woodland Pattern to experience both. Where else could
you witness 150 unique written works, read and performed by a unique individual every 5 minutes for 15 hours
straight!? The Poetry Marathon is a community fundraiser where readers find sponsors to pledge on their behalf. Reader’s secure a minimum $35 pledge to read at a programmed time. The event is open to the public with a $10 cover charge. This cover includes a wristband that will allow you to enter or leave, throughout the day, as you wish. Individuals who sponsor a reader for $35 or more, will receive a complimentary wristband. As years past, the Marathon will provide valuable sustenance for the readers and audience members, refreshed throughout the day, and generously donated by local businesses and organizations. All of the money raised supports Woodland Pattern’s 2018 programming in literature and the arts. Perform! Attend!
