Australia-New Zealand haiku anthology deadline

With just a few days to go to the deadline of 20 October 2013, submissions for the upcoming Australia-New Zealand haiku anthology are surging in – suggesting the milestone project will be a memorable publication.

The project was initiated to celebrate the life of the late John Knight who was well known in haiku circles in both countries and, through Post Pressed, provided many poets with a publication outlet for which he is gratefully, and fondly, remembered.

Haiku poets resident in New Zealand and/or Australia are eligible as well as New Zealanders and Australians living overseas. Poets are asked to submit a maximum of ten haiku, either published or unpublished, with a cheque for $Aust 10. Those with an Australian bank account can deposit $10 by bank transfer. Poets must also include brief biographical notes to a maximum of 50 words as well as publication and/or prize details of previously published haiku and their postal address. Paper Wasp reserves the right to make selections for the anthology based on established conventions of merit.

Please send submissions to:

Ocean Shores NSW 2483

Katherine Samuelowicz/Paper Wasp
14 Fig Tree Pocket Rd
Chapel Hill Q 4069
