Submissions are now open for the second issue of a new online publication set to showcase the beauty of haiku. It is anticipated that there will be three issues per year. The first issue will focus on the late winter and spring seasons and will include New Year. The second issue will celebrate summer and the third, fall and winter. Each issue will be available for free on this website. It is anticipated that the three issues will be anthologised at the end of the year.

The focus of the second issue is ‘Summer’. Growth, ripening, maturity – moving from tender buds and gentle breezes of spring to the full heat of summer. Think verdant fields, lush gardens, vacations, chirping cicadas, balmy sunsets and dog days under a scorching sun. Submissions should reflect the nature of this season and make use of traditional kigo—seasonal words. For a selection of summer kigo to help get the juices flowing click this link. More words will be posted daily in April so please do check back.

In addition to haiku, a small selection of tanka and haiga will be considered for this issue.

Deadline: 13 June 2014
