Among these pages you will find Wisconsin poets past and present who represent the entire state in all of its poetic glory. There are many voices within these pages. Poems to lift you and to sit with you when you need to be quiet and still, when you need to sing with joy, laugh out loud, and weep with all we the people have been through. There is not one poet who tells the whole story. You need a multitude of voices to even begin to get to the truth. There are poets here with skin in the game. Their allies and accomplices appear in these pages too.

There has never been a book quite like this with poets laureate and their kin, people who create space for diverging trains of poetic thought, people who lift other people’s work and continue this ancient oral practice to the page, making us all more human and connected to each other.
