Fabu’s Heart On Writing

In the 2019 calendar, from the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets, we all celebrate Wisconsin people together, and I thank everyone who contributed. My vision was to build on the strong foundation of all of the previous calendars and their hardworking editors by creating a unique calendar that included historical truth. We have all contributed together to the well being of Wisconsin as pioneers, traders, settlers, farmers, neighbors, workers, poets, and friends.

In celebrating our Native American roots, the cover features the great artist and humanitarian Art Shegonee, Ambassador to Indian Summer and the Call for Peace organization. We have poems in Spanish and English. This honors poets whose first language is not English. Most of all, I thank all of the poets who contributed and note that we have poems about or from all of the Wisconsin Poet Laureates and many city poet laureates throughout the state.

Just as I take responsibility for a calendar that includes poets who represent multiple ethnicities in Wisconsin, I also take responsibility for any mistakes. This has been a labor of love, and I hope that love covers all. You can order copies from Carol Pemrich Hauser, at Description: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gifthisiscarol@outlook.com for $15.00 each.
