WPLC Annual Campaign

The Poet Laureate plays a crucial role in keeping the arts accessible and vital to all age groups, and acts as a statewide emissary for poetry and creativity.


Your gift will help to further the mission of the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission and ensure we have sufficient funding to pay the Poet Laureate’s annual stipend of $2,000.

A special thank you for our most generous donors!

Words can express our appreciation for your generosity: a limited edition broadside from a Wisconsin Poet Laureate: Karla Huston (2017-18); Kimberly Blaeser (2015-16); or Max Garland (2013-14) is yours with a gift of $100 or more to the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission--a $25 value.

Letterpress aficionados, poets of all stripes, and those who appreciate Wisconsin art will want to add these unique pieces to their collections.
