The Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve want YOU to participate in our

4th Annual “It’s In Our Nature” Poetry Open Mic Event


Saturday February 25,  3 p.m. CST

At UW Memorial Library Room 126

and virtually via Zoom

Sole sublimity

Outside insights from within

As a poem, shared

Featuring poets of all experience levels, we hope to bring writers together to share their small curiosities, sweeping odes, or any piece of environmental writing in between. By writing we can capture the imagery of our mind’s eye, looking inward to draw emotion, beauty, and truth from the outside world.

 The theme of our event this year is “Insight.” Every day our minds sift through a sea of thoughts and sensory impressions, casting the world around us in vivid shades of feeling only we can experience. What marvels exist only within our own heads! Share the beautiful singularity of your mind’s eye with us on February 25th.
