We are all in for a wonderful treat this weekend: We get to spend time with words, with people who love the power of words.
I have done one half marathon and three full marathons already. This year is my fifth marathon.
I am forever grateful to Caitlin and Jacob Jans for putting this event together year after year. It is because of these marathons that I developed the courage to send my poems out into the world to see. it is also because of the marathons that I have made some good friends. This weekend of writing brings people from all around the world together. There is nothing better than this kind of unity.
I have my snacks. I have my paper and pens. I have my room cleaned up and ready to go.
Excited to be here writing with you all.
