Hello poetry marathon community! My name is Tracie aka The Literary Gangster and I am nestled in a small country town in NSW Australia. This is my dog Jawa, she is twelve years old and likes to run up this mountain she is pictured on. She will be my partner in crime during the marathon. I am participating in the half marathon for the first time. Looking forward to the challenge, and of course, the mid night snacks. The only thing I’m worried about is working out the time zones for here….! I hope I can get it right! Good luck everyone! TLG.
