Hello All

It is my pleasure to be the new secretary of the United Haiku & Tanka Society. I have been practicing haiku and writing Japanese short form poetry for five years. It has become my daily meditation and has encouraged me to slow down and experience the small wonders around me. I will give my all to filling the impeccable shoes of Iliyana in continuing the good work of the secretary position.

The April 2019 issue of cattails, the bi-annual journal of the United Haiku and Tanka Society is now available online. http://www.cattailsjournal.com/

It showcases haiku, tanka, senryu, haiga and haibun by poets from around the globe. The  dedicated Youth Corner has a retrospective overview of the last six years. We carry tributes to two poets, Dr Johannes Manjrekar (India) and Martha Magenta (UK). This issue features photos of birds from New Zealand by Sandra Simpson and marks the return of Paresh Tiwari, the resident cartoonist with the first of a new series.

The next issue is October 2020. Submissions open: 1st July (midnight) GMT and close: 31st July (midnight) GMT. Please note our new, shorter submission window.

For further details please check submission guidelines: http://www.cattailsjournal.com/submissions.html

Other Haiku News / Furrows of Snow - Glenn G. Coats
January 15, 2020, 06:22:54 PM
Glenn G. Coats' Furrows of Snow is Released

January 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Rick Black
908-227-7951
rick@turtlelightpress.com

ARLINGTON, VA—Turtle Light Press proudly announces the release of the winner of its fifth haiku chapbook competition, Furrows of Snow by Glenn G. Coats of Carolina Springs, North Carolina.
The collection, which includes 29 haiku as well as black and white photos, guides us on a meditative journey down a handful of East Coast rivers. It offers a timeless celebration of fishing and life on the river as well as poignant reminders of our aging, as reflected in poems about the author's mother.
"The poems in Furrows of Snow are essential," said Susan Antolin, the 2019 contest judge, "especially in these times when life seems so harried."
Coats, 68, a retired reading teacher who now lives in Carolina Shores, North Carolina, has been writing haiku for more than 30 years. He got started the way a lot of elementary school teachers do— by teaching haiku as a creative writing lesson. But then he got more into it himself, reading extensively, writing poems and submitting to journals.

He has won first place in the Peggy Willis Lyles contest, first place from the North Carolina Poetry Society for the Lyman Award and many others. He has also won many awards for his haibun writing.

Furrows of Snow, which lists for $12.50, is available through our own website store https://www.turtlelightpress.com/2020/01/furrows-of-snow-is-released/ with free shipping,

Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Furrows-Snow-Glenn-G-Coats/dp/0974814768/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3P3FM5UFCUCEO&keywords=furrows+of+snow&qid=1579021720&sprefix=furrows%2Caps%2C182&sr=8-1

or Barnes and Noble. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/furrows-of-snow-glenn-g-coats/1134937196?ean=9780974814766

You can order the book overseas through the book depository. https://www.bookdepository.com/
