NeverEnding Story: Last Call for Haiku and Tanka Submissions

A haiku or a tanka without "rhetoric" was likely to be no more  than a brief observation without poetic tension or illumination.
-- Donald Keene, The Winter Sun Shines in: A Life of Masaoka Shiki, p 57.

My Dear Friends:

Send your best published haiku/tanka (please provide publication credits) or new work and a bio sketch (50 words max.). No more than twenty haiku/tanka per submission and no simultaneous submissions. Please note that only those whose haiku/tanka are accepted will be notified within three weeks, and that no other notification will be sent out. The accepted haiku/tanka will be translated into Chinese and posted on NeverEnding Story and Twitter. The best 66 haiku/tanka will be included in the anthology, and each poet in the anthology  will receive a copy of the e-book edition (note: Butterfly Dream, Volume Two and One Man's Maple Moon, Volume Two are now available online for your reading pleasure)

For more information about submissions, see anthology submission guidelines for haiku and tanka. Deadline: December 16, 2016.

Look forward to reading your work.

Happy Writing!
