The Respite and The Widow appear in their most recent issue, Issue 7: Winter Issue 2011.
The December Issue of Sparkbright Magazine was released and I didn't realize it until yesterday when I stumbled upon the poems as I was looking for the Isthmus Magazine article on the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets' Winter Festival Reading. It was a great sort of surprise.
Turns out the editors notified me of their intent to publish, but I failed to record it properly. I usually keep fairly good records, but dropped the ball on this one.
If you missed my post the other day about the poem, Three Horses in the Cold, it is still up at Bolts of Silk, so I hope you'll check it out.
Thank you for being a part of Visits and Verse. I especially appreciate those readers who have taken time to leave comments this month. I've loved all the dialogue. It's always terrific to hear from you.
And now it's time to announce the winners of the Prestel art books:
Here are the top five commenters of the month, winners of the promised Prestel art books:
- The Prude

- ScheltyDebate and Sandy (Sandy L.) tied for 5th place.
Please send your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org within the next ten days, and I'll ship your book to you.
Congratulations to the winners! You've made January fun.
