Other Haiku News / Re: Japanese Prints online!

2020 will be a year no one will forget, between the storms and now this virus, but
having a verse published in this amazing exhibition amongst so may wonderful entries
will be the light that will take me through all this.
Positive thoughts everyone, and keep safe, there's some right twits out there.

Thank you, Karen and Alan and all the people who brought this to us.

Congratulations Lorraine!

The museum selected the haiku out of 800 plus poems myself and Karen collated.

I'd say it's definitely been read by a lot of people as there was quite a Twitter storm yesterday in particular.  :)

Karen is going to start answering the emails we've received, and this question of publication has been raised. Karen will also be bringing out a second newsletter, which will touch on this, as well as a new exciting project in these strange self-isolation times.

It's quite a hefty publication credit in a great way, as this doesn't often happen. Kate Newnham, the Senior Curator, is a Japanese expert, and visited Japan in February this year. Phew, yes, no sign of the virus anywhere but in poor China at that time.

I have to say it's a great haikai verse!

The Bristol Museum & Art Gallery is a highly respected museum in the UK:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_City_Museum_and_Art_Gallery

Famous for various things including Banksy exhibition, where the queues just got longer and longer, and was highly innovative. And also the shrouds put over the animals who are extinct or about to become extinct. I bet many animals are getting a breather now that humans cannot range as freely currently.

A working title for a publication credit might be:

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery Masters of Japanese Prints: Haiku
Online Exhibition (Launched on Unesco's World Poetry Day 2020)

or just:

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery Masters of Japanese Prints (2020)

Yes, it was great being commissioned by the museum, and an honor indeed!

warm regards,
Alan



Alan,

Beautiful writings to accompany the beautiful prints.

I'm so excited that one of mine was chosen.

Which begs the question: is my haiku considered published? It's in the public.

Such a wonderful thing for you and Karen as well!

Lorraine

Thank you Alan.

You and Karen stay well through these unique times.

Journal Announcements / new issue of NOON: journal of the short poem
« Last post by Philip Rowland on March 22, 2020, 11:59:36 PM »
For those interested not only in haiku but also other short poetry, the latest issue of NOON (#16) can be found here:
https://noonpoetry.com/issues/
I'd also like to mention again the related anthology, published in 2019, NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems, which includes well over a hundred haiku as well as other short poems selected from Issues 1-13 of the journal; the contents sequenced, renga-like, from start to finish. The book is published by Isobar Press, a small press focused on English-language writing from Japan. Excerpts from reviews and links to ordering the book online can be found here: https://isobarpress.com/titles/noon-an-anthology-of-short-poems/
