Greetings fellow poets! I am 34 going to 25 and my hobbies are singing, writing music; poetry and short film scripts. I love gaming, larping and intellectual stimulation and hold the Geek flag high. I like to think of myself as Basorexic-pan-sapiosexual; if you would like to know what means just ask or try figure it out. I will be writing from sunny South Africa, although with the winter we are experiencing the sun made retire for good soon. All the best to my fellow competitors and may the best poet be inspirational.

I am a retired DeeJay, turned Actor/Writer. Have enjoyed the creativeness in writing and the feel of portraying someone else. Have done community theater and can be see in the horror zombie film, 'Bled White'. I never thought I would do poetry until my creative writing class. The teacher liked my poems.

Little Sister Junkyard
I teach composition, write poems, and herd cats.
Writer, artist, and passionate analyzer of everything. I've been writing since I knew what a pencil was and they can't get me to stop.
I am walking my medicine path as a woman originated from Hong Kong and residing in the Cowichan Vailley on Vancourver Island. Deeply believes in the evolution of the human souls, I dedicated myself to the path of human be(com)ing through restoring all relations - within self, with others living beings, and with the Greatest Mysteries of Life. I am a ecovillager, permaculture teacher, herbalist, farmer and wellness designer. When the soul begins to speak, there’s no way to resist its gifts. I spent my short adult life learning to remember the language of the soul, and take away the resistance from my little human brain. The First Nation elder taught me to think with my heart, and I practice it in the art of poetry.
I am a public defender-type criminal defense attorney/poet/writer living in NYC. I love what I do, traveling low to the ground all around Europe, writing, writing and writing. Ask me anything you want to know.
I have been writing poetry since I was 16, not because I thought it was a "cool thing to do", but because if I didn't my head would have exploded. With a multitude of words billowing through my brain, I had no other choice but to let them out. Some have been funny, many have been sad, but mostly, they've been guideposts. I hope you enjoy my ramblings. g.

I am an actress and poet who lived in the US for over 9 years and I am now back in my native city of Barcelona, Catalunya. I was a member of the San Francisco Poets Brigade, created by San Francisco laureate poet Jack Hirschmann, and a co-founder of the Chicago branch of the Poets Brigade. I will be doing the half marathon, and it is my first time here. Glad to meet you all.

Single mother of 2. Have been knocked down many times in life, but keep getting up and moving forward. Writing is my release. I am currently writing a book about surviving a dv/kidnapping experience.
I had a book of poetry published via a publisher that went bust keeping my money and providing @ 15 copies of Facets In Poetry. I received these copies the day before my sons' murder. I did write to release grief and have begun to write again. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia so the marathon really was a challenge for me but I made it.
