Rolf Olson is the featured poet in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series on Wednesday, March 13 at 7:00 pm.
Rolf Olson has called Door County home since 1980. He has been a craftsman in wood and metal for 25 years, working as a boat builder and joiner, designing and building doors, cabinets, furniture and functional objects in wood and metal.
Olson began writing poetry seriously about 14 years ago. He writes about a wide variety of subjects and describes his poems as “bold, thought provoking, and entertaining.” Others have described Olson’s poems as “spare, fun, intense, and Zen-like”. He is pleased to have been a member of the “Unabridged Poets” group for nine years. Olson’s first chapbook, “One Glass Eye,” was published in 2003, and his next book, “Riot at the Poets’ Café” is currently in final editing.
