It’s my pleasure to announce that starting with the
January 2011 issue, Irises: The Bulletin of The American Iris Society
will be printed in FULL color by vote of the AIS Board this past weekend (at a
savings to the Society no less thanks to a change of printing vendors!)
This is also a friendly reminder of the upcoming editorial
deadline for the January 2011 issue on November 15. I’m also again soliciting
your contributions for the new department called “In Your
Backyard”. This is a great opportunity for any of our AIS
readers (and non-AIS readers too!) to contribute little pieces (less than 500
words!) about “what’s goin’ on” in your garden.
What varieties grew well this season? What turned out to be your favorite
cultivar? Did you grow a new species and have tremendous success?
Did a few must-haves become must-composts? Tell us your garden
news! We want to hear from YOU!
Here's the redux:
1) Send to firstname.lastname@example.org your short (less than 500
2) Send along a photo of
yourself or of your garden (must be publishable quality, 300 dpi resolution,
and a JPEG or TIFF)
As always, I’m open to suggestions from anyone. Provide
your feedback and help make your official magazine a success!
