CHO is temporarily closed while we're creating our new look starting with our April 16:1 issue. It will be released sometime in April.

Bob Lucky has resigned as Editor-in-Chief after 5 years of dedicated service to the haibun community. Rich Youmans is our new Editor-in-Chief.

New Staff: Tish Davis (Tanka Prose Editor), Rich Youmans and Terri French (Haibun Editors), Patricia Prime (Articles, Reviews, Interviews and Commentaries Editor), and Ron Moss (Haiga Editor).

The next submission period for our CHO 16:2 August issue opens on May 1. And we'll also be accepting submissions of haiga for the next issue.

The three links at the top will continue to take you to all previous issues of CHO and all articles that have been posted since the beginning.

  • The archive link takes you to all previous issues (volumes 1-15 of CHO and volumes 1-4 of American Haibun and Haiga).
  • The articles link takes you to all articles, reviews, interviews, editorials & commentaries presented on CHO as of 2020.

Thank you!
