This past July, I wrote a poem an hour for twelve hours as part of the half-marathon participants in the 2019 Poetry Marathon hosted by Caitlin and Jacob Jans. At the top of each hour, a prompt was posted and the poet had the hour to write to the message. It tested my poetic prowess and I had great fun! I couldn’t imagine having the staying power for 24 hours!
The sevenling was new to me and I enjoyed my ‘fun’ take on that poem. Friday my books arrived and I am thrilled to say that I have a poem alongside other international contestants, on page 134. The poem of mine that editor Jennifer Faylor chose was to a picture prompt – one showing the night sky uninhibited by city lights, so the stars were dancing!
Thank you Jennifer Faylor for editing this anthology and to Caitlin and Jacob Jans for this wonderful contest that brings folks together from all over the globe.
