The Wednesday Poets began when the Barton Public Library received a grant from the Vermont Council of the Humanities providing free copies of Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry, an anthology by Billie Collins. Following an initial three sessions the group decided to keep writing together as long into autumn as they could and to begin again each following summer.
