  1. That’s a great idea, Caroline. Thank you so much. You will be hearing from me. At the moment I am getting my dragon finished. It took such a long time until I got the drawings.
    But they look nice.
    Love,
    Ruth

  5. I stumbled upon your website a week or so ago and have just signed up to your blog. I’ve been writing short form/ daily observational poems for about 2 years and in light by what you say on your submission page this seems like the kind of writing you may publish here. Next step is to select something to send if you think you might be interested.

  6. I’ve checked the guidelines but can’t tell if you consider a themed set of five or so tanka. I have a set that I wrote surrounding my first husband’s recent death and want to find a good home for them together if that’s possible. I’m starting with you:-)
