Sketchbook Third Anniversary Issue

The Third Anniversary Issue of Sketchbook has just been published. Sketchbook is full of poems in a variety of genres, visual art, and more, all nicely wrapped in cover art by Ron Moss (that brings to mind Basho or Poe).

The editors write:

We are now accepting submissions for the November 30, 2008 Sketchbook issue. We invite you to send your work to Our deadline each month is the 20th.

The kukai topic for the month is "old diary". Read the details here.

The topic for the haiku thread is "winter holidays". Read the details here.

We were saddened to learn that William J. (Bill) Higginson passed away on October 11, 2008. Most haiku poets have encountered Bill Higginson through one of his books. He has made significant contributions to the haiku world; he will be greatly missed. The Sketchbook editors would like to include a tribute memorial to William J. Higginson in the November 30, 2008 issue. Please send any written contributionremembrancepoem, haibun or recollection to the Editors We look forward to reading your November submissions.
