The winds of March have come and goneand on our desks this month we have a pile of submissions for both Sketchbook and Sketchbook II.

Three new books to consider reading for March are in the Book Fair:

seasons of a hermitess: 101 haiku by an'ya” . . .

Beads on Blossoms  By Andreas Gripp

Fire and Rain  By RD Armstong

If you are in the mood for a good read try these three books. You have read the work of these writers in Sketchbook. So go out and splurge on a new book.

This month we present a Cid Corman Tribute, who passed away March 12, 2004.

Another feature for March is the Sketchbook work of A. D. Winans who has appeared monthly in Sketchbook since December 31, 2006; the feature also contains links to other A. D. Winans work.  Enjoy A Retrospective of A. D. Winans in Sketchbook.

Saul Bernstein continues to fascinate me with his monthly essays on art in Reflected WaveEnjoy the delightful artistry of Saul Bernstein.

This month 66 different writers appear in Sketchbook and Sketchbook II.

It is time to think about sending your submissions for the April issue. Please remember that our deadline is the 20th of each month.  It is so pleasant every morning to open the mail and see your excellent submissions early in the month—so much leisure time to read and prepare the magazine pages. And then the last week scramble of the month begins.  Oh, the pleasures of editing a journal!

Please send your submissions to:

Read and enjoy.
