Following communication with Rebecca Sutcliffe, sister of Rachel Sutcliffe and with permission from Rachel’s parents, it is with a very heavy heart that I inform the haiku world of Rachel’s recent passing.

Despite suffering from a very serious autoimmune disorder for many years, Rachel always displayed a wonderful sense of humour and was a fine and prolific writer of haiku and senryu. Her poetry has been published widely in dedicated haiku journals and on her blog Project Words.

Rachel will be dearly missed by all in the global haiku community. I was honoured to include this monoku of hers in a selection back in October on The Haiku Foundation’s ‘Per Diem’ feature. I think it demonstrates her ability to find something positive in times of such adversary.

May our friend rest in peace.

deep woods happy to just be

Entries invited for the contest now called ‘A New Haiku Movement for Peace’.

Submission details here:


The IAFOR Vladimir Devidé Haiku Award 2018 is an open competition for previously unpublished haiku written in the English language. The award is for haiku regardless of whether in the traditional or modern style; it transcends haiku divisions and is based only on literary merit.

Deadline March 1st 2018

Winners will be announced at The Asian Conference on Arts & Humanities, (ACAH), which takes place Friday, March 30, 2018 to Sunday, April 1, 2018.

(And a little bit of useless information - just because I was so excited about it - my entry was runner up in the History, Story, Narrative section judged by Susan Burch last year!)

Link to IHS website for details of this and World Children's Haiku Contest 2017-18

Judged by Angelee Deodhar, DeVar Dahl, and Billie Wilson.

Lots of haiku friends in here - congratulations to all!

I forgot to mention that I came second in this year's competition with a version of a bee haiku I workshopped here on THF! :)
