This week I wanted to celebrate a couple of things that are going on within our community as well as let you know what's going on here at Poetry Pea.
James Young, one of the editors here at Poetry Pea has a new project that we could support him with. He is the haiku editor for his regional newspaper, the South Wales Evening News. There will be a daily haiku and wouldn't it be super if we supported him with submissions. Send them to [email protected] He's going to tweet the successful one, every day.
Douglas J Lanzo also has something to celebrate. His first novel, The Year of the Bear, has been accepted by a publisher and he is busy with all the pre publishing work he has to do. Congratulations Doug!
A reminder that the Haiku Society of America now has its conference speeches up on YouTube. I'm delighted that I can catch up with the speakers I missed. While you are there, if you haven't seen it, you can take a walk with me from last year's conference.
