Along with our regular haiku, haiga, haibun, renku and tanka sections, AHG 2.2 includes Susan Constable’s feature on Kozue Uzawa, tanka poet and founder and editor of the Canadian tanka journal, ‘GUSTS’.

Expositions Section
To our regret, there is no Expositions section in AHG 2.2. We apologise to our readers for any inconvenience. If you have submitted work to the Expositions section, either for AHG 2.2 or for AHG 2.3, please contact Lorin Ford.

And now the good news: We are delighted to welcome Mathew Paul to the AHG team as the new Expositions Editor. Many of you will be familiar with Matthew’s reviews in the UK haiku journal, ‘Presence’, and others will have recently enjoyed his selections of ‘Workers’ Haiku’ published in THF’s ‘ per diem’.

Due to the immanent deadline for submissions to AHG 2.3, we are not sure at this date whether Matthew’s first AHG Expositions section will appear in the June or the September issue. We encourage you to send any book reviews, essays/articles or your commentaries on individual poems for the June AHG, by March 15th, in any case.

We’ll publish Matthew’s email address for submissions on the AHG website as soon as we can. In the meantime, please send any submissions for the Expositions section or enquiries to Lorin Ford at , being sure to include 'AHG Expositions Section' in the title bar.

Submissions DeadlineThe deadline for all submissions to AHG 2.3 (the June issue) is March 15th. Please check our submissions page for details and editors’ guidelines.
