The H. Gene Murtha Memorial Senryu Contest for 2017 is just around the corner! Please READ the contest guidelines carefully, and DON’T submit until May 15th!!!
P.S. If you want to know more about Gene’s work, just read his FREE e-book, Biding Time!
The Seventeenth Issue of Failed Haiku is now up and ready for reading! Some inventive work, from a great group of poets.
I want to thank all the poets who contribute so regularly, and to those who are appearing for the first time. Thank you all for your continued support!
This one has a lot in it, and some work that I think is truly unique! Some stunning poems submitted this month, so dive in and enjoy!
This is an incredible issue! I know, I know, I would say that, but this one is special. We feature a video of haiga by Kris Moon (Kondo), another wonderful contribution by Anita Virgil, and MANY MANY MANY fine poets!
Over 150 pages, and a wonderful collection of senryu in every venue!
Enjoy! I had a blast putting this issue together, and finished it about two minutes ago!!!
A few words, and some unabashed shilling, if you don’t mind.
Ron Moss, who is a long time friend and inspiration has a new book out.”Bushfire Moon“, is simply one of the best collections I have read in years! That is saying something since I am a voracious reader of haiku! The link above will take you to Amazon, and it is free shipping for Prime Members! Don’t miss this one! My review carried a ‘guarantee’.
“A Year Unfolding“, by Debbie Strange is a wonderful collection, by one of our best! I have known Debbie for years, and published many of her poems and haiga. I wrote a review of this one, and had the chance to see it prior to publication. This book of little poems would fit nicely on your bookshelf. Again, free shipping for Amazon Prime Members!
Peace folks… The new issue will be out on time on March 1st!!!
The latest issue is now UP!!!
Please note the new ESSAY SECTION!!!!
