Hey everyone my name is Jami Sonsalla. I'm 28 years old and have been writing for about 20 years now. I've never shared my work with anyone and I've finally decided to fight my fear of criticism and shyness of opening up. I'm currently in the hospital and have been here for 5 days due to some kidney issues. I wish everyone the best of luck and am excited to be a part of this event!

Thompson is my name and a very cool fella, petty calm and much introverted. I do much of my things within because I connect more from the inside than the outside. I love to write, because it serves my inner being and fill my spirit with enthusiasm and hope. Love u all, because I'm humane.
Pamela Gerber is a freelance writer, blogger, poet, college instructor, and skincare specialist. This is her third Poetry Marathon.
25. I write because I don't know how not to. Because, like Bukowski says, it comes bursting out of me.
New to the marathon this year, looking forward to exploring and expanding.
I started writing poems over forty years ago and have never stopped!
Year two of joining the poetry marathon. Really enjoyed last year and look forward to this year. I still love to read and write. Words are my world.
I'm not the creator of the Poetry Marathon, my wife Caitlin is, but I help manage the event and the website. I'm participating as well. I like to write sonnets.
Hi everyone! 😊 I completed my PhD on contemporary feminist literature (namely fairy tale revisions) in 2018 at Ulster University, Northern Ireland. Since completing my PhD I started to write poetry and have had pieces published in various journals. I also recently returned from a year in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I was the 2019-20 Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence for both the University of Tulsa and Tulsa Community College. Having now returned to my home place in Northern Ireland, I’m currently working on my first poetry chapbook but I struggle to balance my time between both academic and creative writing, so I’m hoping the Marathon will give me a bit of a kick start to establish a more regular and committed creative writing routine. A whole 24 hours to focus solely on my poetry is a very welcome opportunity for me! I look forward to meeting wonderful creatives and reading your work.
Pyotr Miley is the nom-de-plume of an unsuccessfully incognito romantic. A veteran of small-town Nebraska, big-city Europe, Kansas farm country, Western Maryland Appalachia, surburban Colorado and a Benedictine monastery or two, Pyotr, enjoys spinning words into stories. Years of writing found their way into litter bins spread across several thousand miles and two continents before he found the courage to begin to keep and to share some of what he was scribbling onto napkins and coasters. Pyotr, who makes no secret of his either his 'real' name nor his 'legal' name, prefers to use a nom-de-plume that honors his father, who died when Pyot was six. Besides the nickname, 'Pete', this semi-legendary family figure also helped instill in Pyot, at an early age, his love of words, and later, posthumously, of artistic endeavour. Pyot lives a quiet but jovial and convivial, cenobitical existence with his books, his art, his faith and his love of the magic that is life.
I'm a fifteen year old poet from Iowa. I will be participating in the full marathon this year.
I am a creative brooding individual from South Africa. I often spin threads until they become worlds and people and things to get lost in. I'm always after more.

Steph Matthiesen Avilés
I'm a 21 year old male. A 3rd year B.Tech in Civil Engineering student who loves to write poems , some of my poems have already been published in renowned National and International anthologies.
I`m a literary translator and writer myself, though quite a new one having started to write poetry and short fiction only bout three years ago. I`m from Latvia but try to go and stay in my beloved Paris/Montmartre whenever possible. This is my place of endless inspiration and creative thought. I hope to reach the end but cannot be certain and also I don`t have access to a PC all the time. Best wishes to all!
