HAPPY NEW YEAR! Issue 49 is UP!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Failed Haiku enters the FIFTH YEAR! Thanks to all of you who submit your work, all of you who read our work around the world, and to the many ‘guest’ Editors who have allowed me to survive my weak ass Internet! Bless you, all!

We are beefing up our presence on YouTube and would be REALLY REALLY GRATEFUL if you all of you would Subscribe to our channel. You will not get emails unless you want them, but you will help us reach more folks on search engines and within YouTube who are searching for senryu.

Without further ado, Here is Issue 49 of FailedHaiku!

HOLD YOUR SUBMISSIONS! We will have TWO guest editors next month!!! Be sure to check the Submission Guides before you submit!

Again, have a great and safe NEW YEAR!

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!
