Poetry Month Continues

Nearly halfway through April- poetry Month- and StarkLight Press would like to congratulate all of our marathoners on their stirring and thought-provoking poems! Thanks to everyone who applied to enter our writer’s circle for the contest, and congratulations to those who have engaged on our poem-a-day endeavor.

Our poets for our marathon will have their work published in our upcoming Poetry Month anthology… which of course will be coming out after May begins 🙂

We encourage everyone to try to write one poem at least for April, and to try to expand your poetic comfort zone with this (inexhaustive) list of poetry styles from around the world, thanks to Wikipedia:

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!
