A Hundred Gourds 3:1 now online

The ninth issue of A Hundred Gourds, a quarterly journal of haiku, haibun, haiga, tanka and renku poetry is now released. The issue marks the beginning of our third year of publishing. Many thanks to our readers and contributors for making AHG the success that it continues to be.

We wish you all the Joy of the Season and a Happy and Fruitful New Year.


Along with our regular Haiku, Tanka, Renku, Haiga, Haibun and Expositions sections, AHG 3.1 offers two Features:

In Memoriam – Laryalee Fraser, 1940 - 2013

It was with great sadness that we received the news that Lary passed away in October. A patient and encouraging mentor for many, Lary was modest about proclaiming her own achievements. Susan Constable has compiled a collection of Lary’s fine haiku and haiga in tribute to the unstinting service Lary gave to the online haiku community for many years.

Le Groupe Haïku de Montréal

In the heart of Montreal, Canada, Le Groupe Haïku de Montréal meets to support its members in the writing of haiku that differs from the kind of haiku typically written in France. Mike Montreuil gives some insight into the workings of the group and a bi-lingual sampler of haiku, haibun and tanka.

Submissions Deadline

The deadline for all submissions to AHG 3.2 (the March 2014 issue) is December 15th. AHG has an open submissions policy: any submissions received after the deadline will be filed for consideration for the June 2014 issue. Please check our submissions page for details and editors’ guidelines.
