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!

 

 

 

Submissions for the July Issue now OPEN!

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 editor@failedhaiku.com!!! Submissions for this issue are now open and will close at midnight EDT on the 25th of the month.
