Simply Haiku Features Local Haiga

Simply Haiku features local haiga

I would like to announce that the winter edition of Simply Haiku is now online.

In this issue I was invited to be a guest editor in the haiga section. I would like to draw your attention to the work of Ross Coward of Hobart, and his first attempt at haiga, using his own haiku and images that he took on a recent trip in Tasmania.

Please enjoy at your leisure, what is a wonderful issue and well done to all concerned.

The meeting was held at the Box Factory in Regent St South, Adelaide.

Present: Lynette Arden, Maeve Archibald, Belinda Broughton, Margaret Fensom,
Marilyn Linn, Elsa and Alain Rozanes, Alex Ask, Athena Zaknic.

We held a kukai. Each member brought 3 haiku or found 3 haiku in books. We
circulated the haiku anonymously and each member read out favourites. There
were many haiku to appreciate and the experience was most enjoyable. We plan
to use this format again, along with other activities. Following the kukai
we had lunch while workshopping haiku and tanka brought by various members.
