A Hundred Gourds 1:1 is now online---

The first issue of A Hundred Gourds: a quarterly journal of haiku, haibun, haiga and tanka poetry is now online.

The Editorial Team of A Hundred Gourds extends warmest thanks to everyone who submitted their work for consideration for this, our inaugural issue. Thanks to your enthusiastic welcome, it’s a bumper edition.

As well as haiku, tanka, haiga and haibun you’ll find essays, interviews and a review in the Expositions section.

There is also a memorial Feature dedicated to the late Janice M. Bostok, Australia’s haiku pioneer.
