Finis

Hello, folks. Donna de la Perrière here.

As we close up shop, I want to thank every single person who has participated
in the Bay Area Poetry Marathon over these past 15 years. Particular thanks to
Alley Cat Books, Emerald Tablet, ATA, & The Lab for providing us with our home bases.

It seems fitting that our final event of 2019 was dedicated to Kevin Killian
whose passing marked the end of an era, both in poetry & in San Francisco.

Thanks to him & to you all, for everything.

It’s been a great ride.
