  1. This certainly is a wonderful idea. Not much strength at the moment but through sites like this I can still get around and
    keep my toes in the water. What a joy to come upon Marlene Mountain’s : now that i’m famous i’m temporarily unavailable
    in her
    “connections” [whcmm] 2000’s. 🙂 Something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving.

  2. No problem Scott, I’m just grateful for the ability to share this sort of information with the others thanks to you and the rest who work so hard here.

  3. Here’s something I think would’ve been worthy of the news update:

    “Haiku News” – with a difference! As far as I’m aware this is the only “haiku news” website which isn’t about squeezing headlines into a 5,7,5 format, but actually focusses on genuine haiku and tanka. There is usually a new poem every day.

    Amongst the numerous poets who’ve already published are Paul Smith, and (coming soon) Michael Dylan Welch.

    I hope everyone enjoys this new site which has been running since June. Submissions are accepted at any time.

    1. Christopher, thanks for sharing this, and my apologies for not having included it among the links in the post.

      and if anyone else out there would like to leave links or news items through comments, please do.

  4. Re: news– Borges included six “tankas” in his poetry collection *The Gold of the Tigers*. *The Acorn Book of Contemporary Haiku* is available via Amazon. Expensive.
