This month the Failed Haiku ‘guest editors’ will be Lori Minor and Chase Gagnon!!!
This is HAIGA ONLY issue, and here are the editor’s guidelines:
“For this issue of Failed Haiku, We’re looking for Haiga! We want to see haiga that transcend both the image and the poem, and become something completely new — Simply put, we want to see the image and the poem “spark” together like steel and flint, creating a fire of resonance! All mediums are welcome, from photographs to paintings and everything in between. We can’t wait to see your work!”
PLEASE SUBMIT up to THREE HAIGA ONLY TO firstname.lastname@example.org!!! Submissions for this issue are now open and will close at midnight EDT on the 25th of the month.
My sincere thanks to Roberta Beary for being the ‘failed editor’ of this issue! There are some wonderful haibun in this issue by some of my favorite poets! Please pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage and prepare to enjoy…
Next month is another ‘special’ month, so please HOLD your submissions!!!
We will begin taking submissions to the H. Gene Murtha Memoria Senryu Contest! Check out the contest guidelines HERE and PLEASE PAY ATTENTION THE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES!!! Especially the email address and the submission window!
Mike Rehling and Steve Hodge
This issue, guest edited by Shloka Shankar, is now up for your viewing!!! There are 47 haiga by some astoundingly good haijin! I am so impressed that Shloka could FAIL so superbly! She has taken failure to a whole new level. Sincerely thank her for find job editing FH this month. And keep your eyes on SONIC BOOM also!
NEXT month the Guest Editor will be Roberta Beary, and the focus of the issue will be HAIBUN! I will be posting the submission guides in a few days, please WAIT before submitting.
Peace and good reading…
