quillEditor's Pick: One of our Editors comments on one or more haibun.

. Jim Kacian, The World Rights Itself: Comments on haibun in general and on Peter Newton's Three Haibun

quillSpecial Feature: Haibun as Journalism

In cho 7:1 we offered the first of a handful of pieces published by haijin and filmmaker Dimitar Anakiev as op-ed pieces in the largest newspaper in Slovenia. Here's the second, again translated by Sasa Vazic, with editorial advice from Noragh Jones and Jim Kacian. Also worth repeating: we are not necessarily advocating haibun as polemic or advocacy, but wish to broaden the dialogue on what is—and is not—haibun. We welcome your feedback.
