Issue 34 is now UP!

This was a fun issue to edit! Some wonderful haibun, haiga, Kyoka, and Rengay as well! Some of my ‘favorites’ outdid themselves as well, so all in all, I had a blast! My Internet has been very flakey of late and any solution is a year or so away. BUT this issue made me feel a whole lot better. Lots of announcements in the next week so stay tuned.

For now, you have a wonderful issue to read:

Thanks to all the poets who have supported Failed Haiku over the last three years. You folks are the best!

Submission Guide for September Issue!

This months ‘guest’ Failed Editor is Adjei Agyei-Baah!!!!

I would like us to explore the theme of FAMILY by way of senryu and haiga (senryu inclined). I think it will be a fine opportunity to know what has happened or is happening in each other’s lives. The boldness to share one’s life private life publicly in itself alone is a way of healing and preventing suicidal thoughts, while providing the opportunity for haijins and readers to learn from others situations.

You may submit just senryu or senryu based haiga under this theme!

 

 

 

Issue 31 is UP AND Murtha Contest Results!

My thanks to Chase Gagnon and Lori Minor for editing this issue. What a beautiful collection of haiga! My ‘guest editors’ have turned in to a real inspiration to me personally, and I hope you all feel that way too. Don’t forget to take a look at the zine they edit either. Scryptic is fast becoming a crowd favorite in the haikai world!

In this issue, we also have the Results of the H. Gene Murtha Senryu Contest! Steve Hodge and I had a real blast reading the entries, and as we did last year we also published the ‘short list’ so you could all see how difficult it was to choose a winner! Congratulations to every poet who participated, as well as the winners!
