Thank you!

I just completed the half marathon for this year, and I wanted to say thank you to Caitlin and Jacob, and anyone else who helped to organize this fantastic event! (I know there are others who are helping with the full marathon but don’t recall their names, so please don’t be offended and please accept my thanks!)

This is an absolutely wonderful experience! I have energy left and could probably do a few more poems, but I know I would flame out before the full 24 hours is done, so I’m glad I kept it manageable.

Thank you to everyone else who participated, too – I’m looking forward to reading some of the poems that came out of your marathon experience, now that I’m not consumed by drafting my own!


Hi everyone, I’m excited to be part of this year’s Poetry Marathon!

I’m a poet from Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. I’m doing the half marathon that starts at 9 am Eastern (heaven help me, 6 am my time is early for me to be writing poetry!). I have been writing poetry all my life, but it’s only in the past few years that I’ve taken it seriously.

Part of my poetry practice is writing to prompts, and I always look forward to the Marathon’s prompts.

Looking forward to being a part of this community!
