Welcome to contemporary haibun online, a quarterly journal appearing in March, June, September and December of each year. We are pleased to offer our readers quality haibun-style writing and to encourage both the writing and reading of contemporary haibun.

Editors Ken Jones, Jim Kacian and Bruce Ross review submissions independently and then collaborate to accept submissions for both contemporary haibun [the yearly print journal] and for contemporary haibun online.
