My Fifth Poetry Marathon

Hello Marathoners! I am looking forward to writing in the half poetry marathon for the fifth time tomorrow. I participated in 2017, 2020, 2021, and 2022 and have written from California, Hawaii, and Nebraska. This year, I write from Indiana!

I am a stay at home mother of four kids and I love this opportunity to take a day writing and creating. I’ve written some poems I’m really proud of in these marathons.

Happy Writing!

Hello from Nebraska

Hello everyone! This is my fourth half marathon. I’ve written from California, Hawaii, and now Nebraska. I have been writing since I was a girl. I’ve had several poems published in literary magazines like The Society of Classical Poets and The Road Not Taken. I also write fantasy and sometimes blog over here. I’d love to connect with other like-minded poets, so please drop by and say hi.

Looking forward to writing on Saturday!


Looking forward to this marathon! I’ve been writing since I was six and became interested in poetry around age fourteen. I’m extremely passionate about writing and art but can get demotivated when I don’t have deadlines. Doing the 9am to 9pm half marathon (never been an all-nighter kind of gal) and expecting to be exhausted and brain-dead, but feeling really good about the potential I’ll have in these drafts.
I write both in form and free verse; depending on how the day goes you will probably see more free verse. Writing from the Pacific time zone…

Good luck, everyone!
