Issue 31 is UP AND Murtha Contest Results!

My thanks to Chase Gagnon and Lori Minor for editing this issue. What a beautiful collection of haiga! My ‘guest editors’ have turned in to a real inspiration to me personally, and I hope you all feel that way too. Don’t forget to take a look at the zine they edit either. Scryptic is fast becoming a crowd favorite in the haikai world!

In this issue, we also have the Results of the H. Gene Murtha Senryu Contest! Steve Hodge and I had a real blast reading the entries, and as we did last year we also published the ‘short list’ so you could all see how difficult it was to choose a winner! Congratulations to every poet who participated, as well as the winners!

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.

 

 

Issue 29 is UP!!!

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…

Mike
