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.
Mike Rehling and Steve Hodge
