Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose essay about Thanksgiving was published in Sasee Magazine. In December, her "The Seven Fishes" won the Wilda Morris Competition for poems about holidays gone awry. Visual Verse published two of her poems written in response to their December prompt. Betty Fedora published her mystery "The Dying Season," and Ruby for Women published the essay "January a New Start"; her poem "Opposite of Wishing in December;" and her essay "Thanksgiving, a Time of Hospitality in November." Writing in a Woman's Voice accepted her piece of flash fiction, "Lady of the Lake," and a poem, both of which will go live online in February.
