Well, here it is finally a great collection of short haibun for your reading pleasure!!!
Issue 55 is now UP!!! My Internet is flailing around, but we made it. Please read the announcements in the front of this issue, and I will have more information for you when I get a good connection.
I want to thank Praniti Gulyani for being our Guest Editor for this issue! Wow, she brought a lot of energy and creativity to both the topic she selected and to her role as an editor. I think a fine young poet is on her way to being a fine editor as well! Take a look at this issue and enjoy the work that all of these fine poets have created.
This issue was co-edited by two wonderful poets, Tanya McDonald and Kelly Sauvage Angel! And I say BRAVO! The cast list is a wonderful collection of established poets from around the world!
THANK YOU KELLY and TANYA!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Failed Haiku enters the FIFTH YEAR! Thanks to all of you who submit your work, all of you who read our work around the world, and to the many ‘guest’ Editors who have allowed me to survive my weak ass Internet! Bless you, all!
We are beefing up our presence on YouTube and would be REALLY REALLY GRATEFUL if you all of you would Subscribe to our channel. You will not get emails unless you want them, but you will help us reach more folks on search engines and within YouTube who are searching for senryu.
Without further ado, Here is Issue 49 of FailedHaiku!
HOLD YOUR SUBMISSIONS! We will have TWO guest editors next month!!! Be sure to check the Submission Guides before you submit!
Again, have a great and safe NEW YEAR!
My thanks to Sonam Chhoki for becoming a ‘Failed Editor’ for this issue!!! Some wonderful haibun from some of my favorite poets in the form! Bowing!
Next month your wild one Failed Editor returns! I am still shaky and have no firm diagnosis, but I am taking some medications to relive a chunk of the pain (no not opioids), and my medical team is the best. Senryu is a ‘cure’ I think! 😉
That said, let’s make this an OPEN CALL for submission. We will be accepting submissions for the January 1 issue from the 10th to the 25th of December!
Peace and Happy Shopping on Cyber Monday!
Huge thanks to Lori A. Minor for editing this issue!!! She did a wonderful job and you all stepped into her vision for the issue with her. Take a look!
THE MURTHA CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SUBMITTED!!!
