A few publication notes for you today:
New Haikai Journal - A Hundred Gourds
The editorial team of 'A Hundred Gourds' welcomes your submissions to our first issue, which will be published online in December, 2011.
'A Hundred Gourds' is a new journal featuring haiku, haibun, haiga, tanka, resources (articles, commentaries, reviews and interviews) and special artwork.
The journal's name is based on a haiku by Chiyo-ni:
hyakunari ya tsuru hitosuji no kokoro yori
a hundred gourds
from the heart
of one vine
(translation by Patricia Donegan and Yoshie Ishibashi)
'A Hundred Gourds' is managed by its editorial team: Lorin Ford, Melinda Hipple, John MacManus, Gene Murtha and Ray Rasmussen. Ron Moss will continue to support us in his valuable role of contributing and consulting artist.
We are dedicated to producing a high quality journal, and look forward to your submissions.
Books for review (hard copy only) may be sent to John McManus or the haiku, tanka, haiga or haibun editor respectively.
