I'm posting fills for my 8-13-13 card. I've been using fests as a way of generating extra prompts for my Poetry Fishbowl and other crowdfunding projects, so the sponsored ones and some free perks have been posted while other stuff is still available for sponsorship. Want to see something that isn't posted yet? Many of my fills belong to series, so their prices will be listed under the relevant series on my Serial Poetry page. For stand-alone pieces you can ask in a comment.
