Introducing Kingfisher

Issue #3 Coming Soon!

Happy Spring! The sun is out, leaves are unfurling, birds are singing, and vaccinations are popping up with the randomness of crocuses. I’m delighted to announce that the next 2 issues of Kingfisher will feature cover art by Annette Makino! Annette is a skilled haiku poet and a brilliant visual artist who resides in Northern …

Issue #2 is in the mail

I’m pleased to announce that Issue #2 is in the mail, so if you ordered a copy (thank you!), it is on its way! The mail to some areas is a bit sluggish right now, so if you don’t receive your order within a few weeks, please let me know and I’ll track it down …

Issue #2 Coming Soon!

Happy New Year! I had very much hoped to have the 2nd issue of Kingfisher in the mail by now, but it seems that this has been a very, very busy season for printers. As a result, I still have not received copies of the new issue. But it should be soon, next week with …

New Submission Windows

After much consideration, particularly in regard to when other haiku journals are open to submissions, I have decided to shift Kingfisher’s two submission windows. The submission windows for 2021 are now the months of February and August. I am still overlapping with a few journals, and I apologize for that, but I’ve got a full-color …

Update on Issue #2

Autumn is in full swing here. Leaves are changing color and abandoning their trees, our yard birds are going through seed and suet at a faster pace than a month ago, and I’m working on the layout for Kingfisher issue #2. Sequencing the poems took a bit longer than expected, mostly because I’m a perfectionist …

Update on Issue #2

I hope everyone is doing all right in spite of everything 2020 is throwing at us. The submission window for issue #2 closed last week and I’m in the thick of reading and responding to submissions. (Thank you for your patience!) In case you’re curious, for issue #1, I received submissions from 144 poets. This …

Shiny Pieces of News

I hope you’re all doing well out there and staying safe. I have three pieces of news that might brighten your day. The first is that I have started mailing copies of Kingfisher! The USPS is experiencing some delays, but if you have placed an order up to this point (July 15), I hope to …

Status Update

I’ll keep this short and sweet: Kingfisher is officially at the printer! Here’s a peek at the proof copy. Sadly, my photo doesn’t do justice to Jessica Sebok’s magnificent kingfisher, so you’ll just have to imagine that it’s twice as vibrant, or better yet, order yourself a copy/subscription and see for yourself! Also, I’d be remiss if …

Cover artist announcement!

I am delighted to announce the cover artist for the premiere issue of Kingfisher is the very talented portrait artist, Jessica Sebok! Please check out her website at https://www.jessicasebok.com I’ve also secured a local printer for Kingfisher, which means I’m one step closer to getting the first issue of the journal into your hands. The …

Cover news

I’m excited to announce that I have a cover image for the first issue of Kingfisher and it’s gorgeous! I’m still working on the cover design, but you’re going to love it. I’m also getting closer to making arrangements with a printer. Progress!
