Watersmeet Spring Ginko September 2020

We braved the inclement weather for our spring ginko to meet at the Hobart Royal Botanical Gardens.

Following 30 minutes of solitary walks, soaking up the gardens in all their spring glory and jotting down haiku or haiku ideas, we gathered in Succulent (the garden’s restaurant) for brunch.

Echidna Tracks Submissions

Echidna Tracks Issue 6: Shelter will be accepting submissions throughout the month of October.

For Issue 6 of Echidna Tracks: Australian Haiku: Shelter we invite your previously unpublished haiku and senryu on the theme of ‘shelter’ in all its many forms: protection from danger or weather, refuge, sanctuary, shield, cover, defence, concealment – including the animate, non-animate, human and non-human.

We won’t want a hundred haiku and senryu using the word ‘shelter’ but will give preference to those poems that best give us a sense of shelter by inference and suggestion.

The submission period for Issue 6 will be open throughout October 2020. Please read the guidelines carefully. We look forward to your submissions. Submissions may be made via the form that will appear on the Submissions page throughout October 2020.
