Write On is pleased to enter our fourth year of collaboration with Midsummer’s Music!
Local and visiting poets were asked to create original poems based on music to be played at one of Midsummer’s concerts. Poets were sent a CD of music to be performed the night of their concert, but with no information as to the composers or other details. Poets were asked to write a poem or poems in response to the emotions evoked by the music they heard. Music and Poetry will take place at eight of Midsummer’s concerts, occurring at different venues throughout the county. The featured poet for today’s benefit concert is Sharon Auberle.

Sharon Auberle is a poet and photographer who fell in love with Door County in 1984 and made it her home in 2008. She has a number of poetry collections, four of which include collaborations with other poets. Her latest book is a poetry/sketch collaboration with poet and artist Jeanie Tomasko, titled Dovetail, which won the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets Annual Chapbook Prize. In April, 2017, she was appointed Poet Laureate of Door County, a two year post through April of 2019. Auberle is a passionate lover of water, trees, and dachshunds, not necessarily in that order.
