I participated in the 2019 Poetry Half-Marathon last year and am doing so again this year. I found the exercise to be quite a kickstart to my creativity and look forward to getting that much needed boost again. I’m a teacher, so having something to pull me out of the distance-learning Covid19 insanity will be much appreciated. I haven’t seemed to get back into my groove since March. A few of my poems from the last half-marathon have been published, and one even got an award! If you’re interested in reading two of them, you can find them here: “To be a Mermaid” & “I Guess I Own a Cat Now”
I’m looking forward to seeing what this marathon brings me.
