Seven By 7 is an anthology that presents seven poems that are representative of the work of the seven poet laureates who have served Door County, Wisconsin since the program's inception. The laureates, appointed by the Door County Board, include Fances May, Barbara Larsen, Estella Lauter, Ralph Murre, Sharon Auberle, Nancy Rafal, and Mike Orlock. Each of these poets in introduced in the anthology by significant poets and writers from either Door County or elsewhere in Wisconsin or the United States. Jude Genereaux, who was the County Board Administrator at the time the laureate program was first approved, provides an Introduction to the anthology with Doris Bezio, David Clowers, Ann Heyse, Al DeGenova, Donna Hilbert, Anne Engelman, and Gary Jones writing about each of the individual poets.Door County has long been one of the cultural centers of the Midwest that draws thousands of tourists from early spring through the fall for a variety of activities, including the visual arts, live theatre, sailing, fishing, a collection of stunning state parks, islands, including Washington Island, a variety of music venues ranging from classical to jazz to rock, and small shops and eating establishments found in one of the Door Peninsula's small towns. Write On Door County is a famous writing center that offers residencies and provides a center for Door County poets and writers. Both the Bjorklunden Center operated by Lawrence University, the Clearing Folk School, and the Peninsula School of Arts also offer residency programs and classes for a wide range of the creative arts.The poetry community in Door County is one of the most active in the State of Wisconsin, and the Poet Laureates are extraordinary writers, many of whom have either a regional and/or national reputation. They have won a variety of writing awards for both their poetry and other creative efforts and are part of the dynamic creative milieu. The poetry they write ranges widely, as might be expected, ranging from the sublime to the ironic to humor to the beautiful. This anthology represents the best of what a great arts center offers.
