Random Praise: David J. Kelly's "Once upon a time"

Featured Writer: Doris Lynch, Before the Blossoming: Thoughts on Haibun

Review: Ray Rasmussen, A Review of Roberta Beary’s Deflection

News: Always nice to see familiar names in poetry, flash fiction and non-fiction journals. And it's good to know some poets are getting paid!

.A shout out to haibunists Roberta Beary and Al Ortolani, who have work, haiku and free verse, respectively, in the current issue of Rattle (#51).

.KYSO Flash has announced a writing contest, exclusively for haibun and tanka prose, open through the 15th of June. Entries will be judged by Matthew Paul, co-editor of Presence haiku journal. Winners, honorable mentions, and finalists will be published online and in a print anthology this fall. And KYSO Flash's latest release, Issue #5, contains the haibun and tanka prose of 19 poets. Congratulations to Editor Clare MacQueen for including haiku-genre work in her short forms journal and to Bob Lucky who won 3rd place in the KYSO Flash Triple-F challenge which was open to all genres.

And sad to hear that after 5 years, the June issue of A Hundred Gourds will be its last. Kudos to Lorin Ford and the AHG editors for their dedication in providing writers a venue for the haiku genres.
