Dickinson Poetry Series

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County presents the Emily Dickinson Poetry Series at 7:00 PM on the second Wednesday of the month. Each evening a featured poet will read his or her own poetry followed by an opportunity for audience members to read during an open mic session.

The poetry community in Door County is extremely vital. The Dickinson Series features both beginning and established poets and provides a comfortable setting for the reading of new work. These evenings also attract new listeners, some of whom then become readers. The Series is intended to enhance both the appreciation and the writing of poetry.

The readings are open to the public and all those who love poetry are welcome.

Emily Dickinson was a prolific poet, who left us 1,775 poems. She favored liberal ideas and shared the religious philosophy of the well-known Unitarian, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
