Mid-Month Update

Thank you to everyone who has already submitted haiku/senryu to Kingfisher during this submission period. For those of you who read my previous post, I am delighted to announce that my new niece was born in the wee hours of this morning. Mama, Mommy, and baby are all doing fine, if a bit sleep-deprived. And …

I’ve Got My Editor’s Hat On!

After a long weekend at the Cradle of American Haiku gathering in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, I’m back.

Submissions for #6 Open August 1st!

It’s my goal to respond to submissions within 5–7 days of receipt, because I know no one likes to wait for a response, especially when there are a number of other fine journals which are also open at this time (see list below). As …

Presenting Issue 3

I’m happy to announce that after a pleasant hour and a half at the post office this morning, nearly 150 copies of this beauty are in the mail! I send Kingfisher via Media Mail and International First Class, which means that a postal clerk (thank you, Cyd!) has to process each envelope individually. It’s a …
