Issue 9 of Echidna Tracks: Australian Haiku: will focus on the theme of Journeys. These may relate to journeys near and far, within and without. They might pertain to geographical travels, trips abroad, down memory lane or into interesting reaches of mind and imagination. They might be shared or personal, brief or lifelong. Share the sights, sounds and scents… stir our thoughts and feelings, take us somewhere intriguing— move us, because the journey has been, or is, a moving one for you…
The submission period for Issue 9 will be open throughout April 2022. Please carefully read the guidelines on the Submissions page and submit your haiku via the Submissions Form.
Previous issues can be accessed through the Echidna Tracks website.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the AHS Committee in the role of Secretary. After many years of excellent service to the AHS, current secretary, Simon Hanson, has decided to step away to devote more time and energy to personal interests including writing. The committee is indebted to Simon for his dedication and wise counsel over a long period of time and wish him the very best for his future endeavours.
The Fringe Myrtles welcomed the new year at our first meeting for 2021 held on the last day of February. It was hoped that the group could meet face-to-face for the first time in almost a year, but due to the recent, sudden and unexpected lockdown, we were once again forced indoors. Fingers-crossed, we can be in each other’s physical company soon.
