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.

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’m a disabled mum of 1 lad & 1 fur baby, I’m studying part time for a BA in English Literature & Creative Writing. I’ve had to put writing on the back burner for a while due to complications with my conditions but I’m determined to start writing again & when I saw the Poetry Marathon I really thought it would give me the kick up the butt I needed. Being a newbie though, I’ve gone for the half marathon! I’m also a mixed media artist and love to draw, sketch, colour - everything I can do that’s creative I love 💖.

Love everything! Fear nothing. Four words to live by. I am a believer in knowing rather than believing. I have a college degree, but my passions have came from nature. My degree is in psychology, which suits me well because i enjoy researching and experimenting. I also know that our minds are our strongest muscle in our bodies. I used to think, "I may not be where i want to be, but i'm going somewhere". Now, i think, "I am exactly where i should be, and everything is exactly how it should be". The only thing that has ever held me back from anything is a thought. Usually those thoughts came from fear. I made up my mind to leave no room for fear in my life. So now, all of my dreams are coming true. Its a pleasure to be here, and to write.

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.

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. Now, I will try anything to challenge my creativeness. I am doing the half challenge. Good Luck to All.

*Marathon Novice* I am a 50 year old wife and mother. I suffer from fibromyalgia. My writing is my outlet and the easiest way to work through my daily struggles. I am honored to participate in this marathon and I can't wait to get started. Don't be surprised if you sense bitterness and darkness in some of my work. It is what it is and I have to release it somehow.
