The Haiku Reader Anthology, edited by Alan Summers, calls for nominations of your favourite haiku from this year, including your own! (either published or unpublished) Each time you nominate one of your own haiku from this year, you should nominate six published haiku (or unpublished haiku with permission given) by other poets: three from a print journal plus three from online journals. 

Full details are at:

Here's a simplified nomination PDF that I presented to the Haiku Society of America conference:

This seems to cover some of the same territory as the Touchstone awards, the Red Moon Anthology series and Metz and Gurga's Haiku 20-- series. Does it do something different, or mainly offer more opportunities to celebrate haiku?

Thank you

Dear Dmitri,

Of course the others highlight or include haiku, which is one common feature, and that's great. I'm coming from a different angle, which will become evident when the first anthology is published.

It's great that haiku has more opportunities of being rewarded nowadays, as more journals that publish haiku also nominate not only for the ones you have listed, but also for the Pushcart Prize etc... etc...

Some of the differences may be 'more' evident in the longer version.

Shorter version:

As this is such a new project, many people are welcome to wait and see. There has been a wonderful and regular amount of nominations, and it's been a delight to read already.

The main reason for the anthology is different though, which has been noted by a few poets. Anyone that has known me over the years will guess there's more to this anthology then meets the eye. I look forward to the reactions when the first Haiku Reader anthology comes out next year.

2023 nominations will open shortly after the publication of the first anthology.

warmest regards,
Alan

Hi Lorraine,

All safely received!

All of your nominations and those by others, who have an email account that bounces back my auto-response message are safely received.

For some reason your email account/server does not allow an auto-response reply.

Ah, yes, and some have not used the correct email address.

The correct email:


   thehaikureader@gmail.com


Whenever I've seen an email account by a poet rejecting the auto response confirmation I've emailed in person.

warm regards
Alan
