Rolf Olson has called Door County home since 1980. He has been a craftsman in wood and metal for 29 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 19 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. Olson’s first chapbook, “One Glass Eye,” was published in 2003, and his book, “Riot at the Poets’ Café” was published in 2013.
