Still trying to find gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people on your list? Write On, Door County has great gift ideas for the readers and writers in your life.
For readers, consider Halfway to the North Pole, an anthology of Door County poetry published by the Door County Poetry Collective; or Through This Door: Wisconsin in Poems, edited by Margaret Rozga, Wisconsin’s poet laureate; and Angela Trudell Vasquez, Madison’s poet laureate. Both make thoughtful gifts for any poetry lover who also loves Door County or Wisconsin.
For writers, consider the gift of registration in one of our many upcoming classes or workshops. All programs are presented virtually, so no matter where your gift recipients live, they can take part with no problem. A gift membership for a writer or reader also makes a thoughtful gift.
Or, consider our new T-shirts, which are a statement on this strange and stressful year: KEEP CALM WRITE ON. Available in two styles and five sizes, these shirts express what we all need to do more of: keep calm and write. Write for yourself if for no one else. Writing out your hopes and dreams, fears and frustrations, is a wonderful and inexpensive way of restoring calm. No one needs to see it but you. And when you do want others to see it, Write On is here for you with a variety of ways to share your work and grow as a writer.
This week we bid farewell to our intern, Audrey Sitte, who joined us in early summer and has provided invaluable help with our social media, online events and other programs. We wish her the very best with the next chapter in life.
Silvia Acevedo will conclude her residency this weekend. As co-leader of the Wisconsin chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Acevedo is the first to be awarded a literary arts administrators residency. She used the time to rethink and reenvision programs the chapter offers.
