A Hundred Gourds 1:3 is now online

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

A Hundred Gourds welcomes your submissions to the September edition.

The deadline for all submissions to AHG 1:4 is June 15th.

In this issue we commemorate the life of Hortensia Anderson, who passed away on the 21st of May, with a haibun written by Shelia Windsor. Hortensia, as she was known as a haiku writer, will be sadly missed by all who knew her and had the benefit of reading her beautiful haiku.

Our feature for this issue is Visual Innovation in Renku Poetry, introduced by Renku Editor, William Sorlien and featuring a renku by Bea Bereis, Simone Busch, Ramona Linke.

As well as our usual haiku, renku, haibun, haiga and tanka sections you will find an interview with Jane Reichhold, essays by Beth Vieira and Jack Galmitz, a commentary on a poem by Jim Sullivan and two book reviews. Enjoy reading!
