I participated in the Poetry Marathon
Challenge 2015. I wrote 24 poems in 24 hours and received an Official
Marathon Writer’s Certificate. This phenomenal event is organized
by Caitlin Jans (Thomson)andJacob Jans, two writers and web publishers living in the Pacific Northwest.
The Poetry Marathon consists on writing 24 poems in one day. Every hour, you receive a prompt posted in the official website with instructions, information about the style, example or images to inspire you with the writing.
I wrote the 24 poems and edited them over the following months. I sent the best for contest. One of the poems was selected to participate in one anthology for Authors Talk Book Show in November 2016.
August 13th next Poetry Marathon - Sign-up starts on July 11th 2016
