The 2019 Poetry Marathon

The goal of the Poetry Marathon is to write one poem every hour, for twenty-four hours, straight. There is also a half marathon option, to write one poem every hour for twelve hours straight.

The 2019 Poetry Marathon starts at 9 AM ET on Saturday June 22nd and goes till 9 AM on Sunday the 23rd of June. Those who are interested in doing a half marathon can either start at 9 AM EST on the 22nd of June and go till 9 PM. Or they can start at 9 PM EST on the 22nd and go till 9 AM on the 23rd of June. The second option might work better for poets living outside of North America.

Sign up will start in late May/early June. You must sign up in advance in order to participate.
