On August 23rd 2014, poets and writers from around the world got up at odd hours and stayed up for 12 or 24 hours. During that period of time they wrote a poem every hour and published it within that hour on the official website. This year a hundred people attempted the whole or half marathon and at least 50 completed one or the other. These people were in England, in India, in Sweden, in Africa, in Lebanon, in the US and Canada, and in many other countries. The participants were strangers before the day, but from it a community formed, out of staying up late, out of writing like crazy, and out of encouraging one another not to give up, even when the power went out or a storm happened. This Anthology includes one poem by everyone who completed the half or full marathon and submitted their poems for inclusion in this anthology.
