Congratulations Half Marathoners! I am so happy that you have completed 12 poems in 12 hours! That is wonderful. Thank you for joining us in this madness.
If you completed the half marathon please send us an email in the next couple of days to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, the details about what event you participated in (full or half marathon), a link to your marathon blog, and an email address in the body of the email.
You will not receive a digital certificate if you do not follow those instructions and email email@example.com by September 2nd.
You should receive your digital certificate within two weeks of emailing us.
Also remember that this year we will be putting together a 2016 Poetry Marathon Anthology.
Submissions will open September 3rd and stay open till the 12th.
All submissions must include two poems, no more, no less. All submissions must be made via our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). The subject line of all emails must be Poetry Submission. Poems must be included in the body of the email.
All poems submitted must be written during the 2016 Poetry marathon. All poems should be completely edited and contain no major grammatical errors. You must indicate which hour each poem was written in. Only poets who completed the whole or half marathon will be eligible to submit.
There is no guarantee that by submitting your poem will be selected although the goal is to include one poem by everyone who submits.
Digital copies will be made available for free to any contributor. Print copies will be available for a reasonable price and any money that is made from them will go back into the marathon.
