Wanted: Snow Poems
We’re looking for poems about snow and snowstorms for the December issue. It’s all right, if the poems mention the Holidays but not necessary. Deadline: November 1. Send them now, if you have them.
This just in from Jeffrey Woodward:
Can you be so kind as to pass the word to your readers about the long interview with Michael McClintock, “Wheeling through the Cedars,” (pp. 145-160) which is available in the current issue of Modern Haibun & Tanka Prose online at
And from Billie Wilson:
The Haiku Foundation reports the addition of a new interactive forum which, according to its creator Peter Yovu, is “devoted to presenting questions for discussion and debate on the nature and possibilities of haiku.” So, check out Peter’s introduction to Sails and then be sure to add your response to lst Sail, which asks “Why do you read haiku?”
Also, for readers who would like to print out a checklist of submission and contest deadlines, the Foundation regularly updates its Event Calendars (one of which is a contests-only version).
