These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:

Winterfaire 2013 is now open on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth, with some different booths in each place. Post a booth with your creative goods/services, or shop for holiday gifts from independent creators. The linkback perk is "No One to Greet the Season" which currently has 27 of 72 verses posted, so it's more than a third done. You can reveal new verses by linking to the Winterfaire, posting a booth, buying something, or sharing a link for a similar holiday bazaar.

The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, Dec. 3 with a theme of "angels and deities."  Please drop by my blog to give me prompts or just watch the fun.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Strange Gratitudes" comes from Polychrome Heroics.  Damask goes home for Thanksgiving, the first time they have seen Maisie's family since the kidnapping.  There are many new verses; see Mira and Clement dealing with different relatives.
