First time participating

This is going to be my first time participating so I’m not really sure what to expect. My sleep schedule has been wonky lately; maybe it’ll be an advantage!  I’m doing the full marathon. Hopefully, my brain will cooperate {fingers crossed}

I love poetry and have written for years. Some of my favorite poets are Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Kaveh Akbar, and Emma Bolden. I bought a new notebook for the event and have a stack of poetry books handy for inspiration!
