At StarkLight Press we love poetry.
We believe in Poetry. We believe in its ability to heal ourselves, each other, and the world.
It’s magic, plain and simple.
So, to bring a little more good magic into the world, we are hosting a 24 Poetry Marathon for any interested poets.
(for those who don’t have the time for a full marathon, you’re also welcome to join in for a half marathon)
What is a poetry marathon? It’s a block of time where, once every interval, you write a poem, either based on a prompt given by the organizers or based on whatever comes to mind.
Our First Annual StarkLight Press Poetry Marathon is an online event starting at 9am PST on August 20, and goes until 9 am PST August 21.
If you’d like to join the marathon, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Press via our Facebook Page http://facebook.com/StarkLightPress/
As an added incentive, selected poems will be published in our Poetry Marathon anthology and will be sold internationally as well as available for e-reading online through several venues.
Share your heart, your thoughts, make some magic- join our Poetry Marathon today!
