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.
