Next month your wild one Failed Editor returns! I am still shaky and have no firm diagnosis, but I am taking some medications to relive a chunk of the pain (no not opioids), and my medical team is the best. Senryu is a ‘cure’ I think! 😉

That said, let’s make this an OPEN CALL for submission. We will be accepting submissions for the January 1 issue from the 10th to the 25th of December!

Peace and Happy Shopping on Cyber Monday!

Issue 40 will be out on April 5th

Folks, no worries, but I am a little messed up lately physically. The weather changes have caught up with several of the injuries I suffered in my youth. Both knees and both my ankles have acted up at the same time. All have suffered trauma in the past. Add to that my right wrist and fingers (you figure that out), and I am a bit cranky. I don’t do pain killers ever, but I am using some good homeopathic remedies and starting to feel better.

I am glad that many of you enjoyed the video for April Fool’s Day, but I want to be clear that STEVE HODGE wrote the script, put together the video, and conceived the entire ‘plot’. Steve does many things in the background of haiku, and I wanted to be sure that he is recognized for all that he does. BUT, the award for deadpan delivery goes to Terri L. French for almost convincing me that BOTH Frogpond and Modern Haiku would publish her essay on Celeste! I love these two!

Also, I have started a YouTube Channel for Failed Haiku. We will be posting podcasts, interviews, and if you click the ‘Channels’ tab you will find many other great haiku channels. Also, we will feature readings from work published in Failed Haiku. Take a minute, look around, and please consider SUBSCRIBING to our Channel, AND some of the other haiku channels as well. You won’t be spammed or notified unless you choose to, so no worries in that way. Also, I never advertise or sell space or try to monetize anything I do. No worries, my intent is simply to promote senryu on the Internet.

THE MAY ISSUE WILL BE EDITED BY A ‘GUEST’ EDITOR. SO HOLD YOUR SUBMISSIONS UNTIL YOU GET THE EMAIL ON THE 10TH AND PLEASE CHECK THE Submission Guides Link on the site every month.

Thanks to all you who continue to support Failed Haiku, and for your kindness to me personally.

Peace

Mike
