Submission Window Opening Soon!

Summertime and the livin’ is . . . well, congested, in my case. I caught a cold in June, which turned into a “super cold” a week later, and just when I thought I’d recovered, I went to Cincinnati for the Haiku North America conference and came home with COVID (at least a dozen of…

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.
