for your summer calendar

April 7, 2016

The Poetry MarathonDuring National Poetry Month, poets are encouraged to write a poem a day. In August, The Poetry Marathon encourages you to write a poem an hour. For 24 hours — 9:00 am ET on Saturday, August 13, till 9:00 am ET on Sunday, August 14, 2016 — participants write and post a poem each hour. If that sounds impossible, there’s also a half-marathon, which starts at the same time but ends at 9:00pm on August 13. There are hourly prompts and plenty of encouragement available along the way. The Poetry Marathon is a project of poets Caitlin Thomson Jans and Jacob Jans. Put it on your calendar and then watch The Poetry Marathon blog for updates. The Poetry Marathon is also on Facebook.
