Title: Bonsai
Post by: Rachel on May 15, 2018, 11:10:05 AM
I was wondering if any one had seen this new journal and what they thought of the quality of the published work?

Interesting question. I was approached but I don't submit work as much at the moment. It has promise and there are some recognised practitioners.

I did see it as soon as it came out. It is a bit mixed but provided a platform for some new names, including some from Blighty.

I was wondering if any one had seen this new journal and what they thought of the quality of the published work?

Yes I agree there is some great work in there but also some other work of a rather dubious quality, one to watch and see which way it develops I think   ;)

I think they rushed to publish. Most of the haiku/senryu read like sentences and had odd line breaks.
