Poetry Marathon Awards Arrived!

The arrival of our award statuettes for the intrepid poets who completed our marathon in August had to be shared today!

14614298_301308913584520_641074357_oOur poets will soon be receiving a beautiful, 6″ gold statue for their completion of StarkLight Press’s 24 hour Poetry Marathon! Those poets who completed the half marathon of 12 poems will receive the white and silver statuettes, for twelve poems in as many hours is no small feat, either!

All of our poets submitted their works to the anthology celebrating this marathon, which was completed this past August. From the Depths, a StarkLight Poetry Anthology, hits shelves across B.C. later this week, and is released internationally next Thursday. Look for your copy of this beautiful, touching and riveting anthology of poems online today, however, in e-book and print here:

Our StarkLight Bookstore will shortly be updated with our new title, and we will be sure to post pictures of the poets with their shiny star trophies in the next month!

 

Congratulations again to all the poets who contributed to our 24 hour Poetry Marathon!

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.

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!
