Three years and still counting!!!

Issue 36 is a milestone in many ways. I never expected to get this far. 24 issues of ShortStuff 17 years ago, and now Failed Haiku Issue 36. About a dozen other publications too in between, so although I may not be famous for my own poems I hope that I get some credit for promoting the poems of others. I want to thank every poet who has submitted their work to me. I hope I have lived up to your expectations. I have enjoyed reading the work of so many fine poets, and it is humbling to think you would trust me with your poems. THANKS!!!

This issue has some surprises like they all do, there are a couple of dozen ‘stunners’ in this one. I hope you enjoy it as much I did putting it together for you.

Next month will be a RETROSPECTIVE ISSUE, so hold your submissions for now. My Internet still sucks, and hope is that by this time next year we will have the issues solved with a new system. I will do a much better job of letting people know what is happening this year. But I will still have to leave the house to do much of the work on the site.

Peace

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!
