A Hundred Gourds 4:1 released

With issue 4.1, A Hundred Gourds begins its fourth year of publishing haiku, tanka, renku, haiga and haibun along with essays, book reviews and features of interest. The 13th issue of A Hundred Gourds, a quarterly journal of haiku, haibun, haiga, tanka and renku poetry is now online.

Australian Haiku in the Global Context

For this quarter’s feature, AHG is proud to present ‘Australian Haiku in the Global Context’, an abridged version of Rob Scott’s book manuscript and thesis, The History of Australian Haiku and the Emergence of a Local Accent, submitted in fulfilment of the requirements of the degree of Masters by Research at Victoria University, March, 2014.

Expositions Section

Due to the unexpected departure of Matthew Paul as Expositions editor, A Hundred Gourds will be looking for a suitable editor for our Expositions section in 2015.

Many thanks to Michael Dylan Welch who, at very short notice, has generously provided both a thought-provoking essay and a book review for AHG readers’ interest and pleasure. Also in this issue our tanka editor, Susan Constable, reviews two contemporary tanka-related books.

Please direct any queries regarding the Expositions section or any reviews, essays or commentaries for 2015 issues of AHG to me, Lorin, until further notice.

Submissions Deadline

The deadline for all submissions to AHG 4.2 (the March 2015 issue) is December 15th. AHG has an open submissions policy: any submissions received after the deadline will be filed for consideration for the June 2015 issue. Please check our submissions page for details and editors’ guidelines.
Please take the time to read the AHG submissions page and ensure that your submission complies with the requirements.
