Publication Calendar for 2018!

Well, I have set up the submission times and general plans for 2018 for Failed Haiku. The calendar is here:  2018 Submission Calendar. You might want to bookmark it!

Submission for the February issue will be ‘by invitation’ only. I will be doing some picks from past issues, as well as featuring a few of our submitters directly. I simply need to slow down right now, and I am sorry if this disappoints anyone.

The FULL ISSUES will the April, June, August, and November issues. That means open submissions will be in March, May, July, and October. We will feed the beast for those issues.

Three issues will be done by ‘Guest Editors’, and you will have to pay attention to their individual submission guides. You should likely sign up for our monthly emails, and I will keep you posted in your Inbox, as well as on this site.

Reichhold Haiga Contest Results!

Our three judges have completed their judging, and notices have been sent to the three category winners, as well as the Honorable Mentions in all three categories. Check your emails!!! Your work will be published in both Prune Juice Journal and Failed Haiku in the November 5 issue!

There we about 180 entries this year, and they were outstanding. If you did not win the contest or get an honorable mention feel free to submit your work to Prune Juice or Failed Haiku, or to any other venue. I was pleased that there were entries from many countries from all over the world, and that mix held true for those who won as well.

Thank you all for helping to share Jane’s memory and her love for haiga with us.

Contest Judging has begun!

The Second Jane Reichhold Haiga competition is now in the ‘judging phase’. We had 180 entries this year, and there was some wonderful work in each category. We will contact the winners in a few weeks, and winners and any honorable mentions will be published in the November 5th issues of Prune Juice Journal and Failed Haiku.

We want to thank everyone who submitted, and especially to thank our judges for being a part of this effort.
