Lakeview International Journal of Literature and Arts

I am fortunate to be able to offer a section within the journal to showcase haiku.

The next issue will be out in August 2013, and I look forward to submissions from February 16th.

A maxiumum of six haiku.

Haiku submission address:

Lakeview Journal haiku submission


What I am looking for:
Previously unpublished haiku that lend a fresh and original approach to haikai literature.

I like haiku that are strong on place and identity, and mostly haiku that are not formulaic.

I am open to various approaches whether traditional (your definition); experimental; experiential; gendai; haiku with kigo and without seasonal reference.

The Kigo Lab Project
I am also interested in submissions to The Kigo Lab Project where fresh new approaches may be made in the experiment of certain well-known words and phrases within, or used by, the English language, which have potential into being utilised, even evolving, into kigo over time.  This is a long term personal project, and I’m aware that kigo outside Japan could take anything from decades to hundreds of years. If it’s not started we will never find out if such a thing as a modern source of local/regional/national/global kigo can be made available for writers within the haikai genre.

I am not looking necessarily for nature poems, but haiku that successfully embrace today’s culture and an awareness of where we come from.

Season words, and the Japanese kigo system, are not only derived from observations of nature, they can allude to a country’s historical, cultural and literary past.

Kisetsu: The seasonal aspect of the vocabulary (kigo) and subject matter (kidai) of traditional tanka, renga, and haiku; a deep feeling for the passage of time, as known through the objects and events of the seasonal cycle.

The current issue is now out, with an essay on gendai haiku by myself:

The next issue will be out in August 2013, and I look forward to submissions from February 16th

Hi Chase,

The February issue has an article on gendai haiku:
February issue: http://issuu.com/lijla/docs/feb2013#download

The August issue will have 15-20 pages of haiku, to subscribe for announcements:
http://issuu.com/lijla/docs/feb2013

The 2014 issue will also feature haiku, but we might be getting ahead of ourselves as it's only early 2013. :-)

But it's always good to think ahead, and I'm delighted you are excited, as the August issue is already shaping up to be a terrific haiku section.

kindest regards,

Alan

The release of the journal will be a week later partly due to illness, partly due to the amount of editorial work to bring together so many genres, as well as poetry.
