I am merely the Editor of this newly incorporated, not-for-profit Allpoetry venture of "poets publishing poets". There is, naturally, a small Board of Directors.
We can only function through donations of participants and also some very community-minded folk.
One way of donating is through paypal to our Account:
Our treasure is Alison (Deviant Pixie) and leader at this moment is Allan Emery. I am happy with the eight people I work with to bring you anthologies, and we are almost ready to produce "These Human Shores" Volume One.
Friends are like flowers in the garden of life with a radish here and there.
I am Ron Wiseman, founder of the Winklings and its leader once more. However, Diane is my Winklings partner in leadership and that makes me very happy! Mahsa Nouraei (MysticMirage) was the guest leader during 2011 and still operates with Danni Fiennes-Klein as sterling Winkling helpers. Sharon Anderson, Jeff Green, and Jim Dunlap have ever been of great support. And, I must add Twinkles from The Winkling. Thank you Ken for the Winkling Artwork.

Pelican Waters south of Caloundra City. Dr Bruce Dawe has retired to Pelican Waters. Foreground are waves of the South pacific. They wash onto the Southern sandbank of Bribie Island. Two mountains are Glass House Mountains named by James Cook in 1770. Behind them is the Southern Blackall Range where we had lunch in the hills. We live farther north along that far Range.

“ Winklings is a group that intends to develop harmonious fellowship in which each member learns and grows in poetry.”
Mahsa (MysticMirage) is my Allpoetry granddaughter and I am mighty pleased at that as I do not have a real-life granddaughter.
Winklings has a vision, too . The goal is to have happy, active members who enjoy spending time with each other and participating in the art of Poetry. It could be a kind of POETOPIA.
Many of us, with friends, are producing anthologies, seasonally, and doing so openly and not behind anyone's back, as it were. I feel Kevin's site lends itself to friends to do this. It has AP approval.
Ron is a kind of ombudsman. You may IM his account about any matter at all, be it poetry, contests, anthologies or 'Winklings'. However, it is always best to IM DianeAH first.
If you are frustrated with the group Winklings or with a Winkler or Winklers or you are about to leave the group, IM Twinkles at The Winkling and she will reply very positively within 24 hours. Most often it is not necessary to leave our group and that pride we all possess makes it difficult to come back even when we would like to, I've noticed.
If you have good ideas you may tell MysticMirage (Mahsa)., DianeAH (Diane), cricketjeff (Jeff), NeonRose(Sharon), D Fiennes-Klein (Danni) or Ron Wiseman (Ron).
