The March 1 fishbowl went quite well. The Poetry Fishbowl Report gives a summary of the action, plus links to all the poems posted so far, the donor perk-post, unsold poetry post, etc. In particular, the epic poems "The Truth in the Tower" (a Fiorenza poem) and "Paper, Scissors, Stone" (a Monster House poem) are currently in microfunding. You can read the sponsored verses that are visible so far, or chip in a few bucks to reveal more verses. (One other epic is currently open for sponsorship. "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is ahead of production.  This is science fantasy.)

Winners have been posted for the 2011 Rose & Bay Awards in all categories except Fiction, which is currently doing its runoff poll. Please vote in the second round of Fiction polling if you haven't already. I won the Poetry category with the Poetry Fishbowl, woohoo! Thank you all for your support.

Currently in front of the canon board at Torn World: "Clouds in the Morning," "The Sky Rangers," "Cutting Time," "Squiggles: Excerpts from Nleimen's Journal," "One-Tick Literature," "Words Between Brothers" (fiction) and "The Sugar Mouse" (poetry). In revision at home: "One Toy for Three" and "Water Dance." I have some more drafts waiting to be moved into the revision phase, and a story in progress.
