2015 Anthologies: 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 per submission and no simultaneous submissions. And please wait for at least three months for another new submission. Deadline: December 1, 2015.

I look forward to reading your work (for more information about submissions, see 2015 anthology submission guidelines for haiku and tanka ).

Happy Writing!
