Usually I showcase haiku by young and new student-poets from Katha Writers' Workshop for school kids and from Symbiosis International University, where I take the undergrads through the 60-hour course. However, this year due to the pandemic and the capping of the number of online classes for students in Indian schools and universities, we are putting out this special submissions call to all young poets to send their best haiku, senryu, tanka or haibun for consideration in the Youth Corner Section of the October 2020 issue of cattails, the journal of the United Haiku and Tanka Society.

Submit to:
