The following poets fell just short of 24 poems in 24 hours. Though they didn’t quite finish the full marathon, they deserve special recognition for more than completing the half, and coming so close to finishing the full marathon. (And if I somehow missed one of your poems, in my counting, please let me know!!!)

  1. We Valkyrie Kerry and Brett Dyer completed all 24 poems in the time span. They are all uploaded in the correct hours and marked.

  2. I did the half marathon. I feel like I was Missed too but I did lose count I might have stopped when I had one more to go. I was interrupted later in the day. So I can’t be sure. Also I didn’t publish mine right away. I didn’t know how to so they all got published the next day. Thank you

  3. Huge congratulations to every poet who wrote verse during the marathon(s)! It was a great experience and I look forward to doing it again next year! (Also, I’m still reading & commenting…plenty of lovely poems to get back to reading!)

  4. I did write 12 poems in 12 hours. Unfortunately, I think I only posted 5 and the rest were drafts which I thought were posted. My last poem was a little late because I literally fell asleep on my keyboard. It was 3am here. I think I was able to post everything the next morning. If this all doesn’t count, it’s alright. Now I know better for next year.

  5. Please, be advised that I am shocked that my name is not among the winners. Kindly note that I did finish 24 poems in 24 hours. This is my second year. I did in 2020. I did in 2021. I am going to do in 2022.
    Please, can you check again?
    Thank you

  6. Thank you, Jacob and Caitlin. This has been a really enjoyable marathon (my first!) to be part of and also great to have the opportunity to comment and read and explore the other voices out there. A truly inspiring experience. Well done to everyone who shared in the moment!

  7. Well done to all my fellow poets -both 12 and 24 hour sloggers – i look forward to some really lovely ones in the anthology-. I’ll keep on commenting though on the poems – i’ve enjoyed the ones i’ve read to date. Well done again!

  8. This was such a great experience!! I am so glad I completed the 12 hour marathon. I hope to participate again on next year if God says the same. I have commented on some of the poems, but I’ve got to get back to my commenting so I do at least 24 comments. All of you are so talented and I am happy just to be in the mix. Congrats to everyone who completed either the 24 hour or the 12 hour portion of the marathon because you guys rock.
