what happened to Kernels?
« on: May 23, 2014, 08:08:59 AM »
I've seen wonderful haiku crediting Kernels as first publication, but the link in the THF calendar appears to be broken. Anybody know what happened to Kernels? I'm just curious to see their layout. Thanks.

Hi Tristan

I believe Kernels became superceded by Cattails:

Just seen this post again, and it reminded me that a lot has changed!

One change is that I've become the new President of this society:

The founders retired, and approached new people, and the journal is now called Cattails:

And our haibun competition has just opened too for this year!

The “Samurai” Haibun Competition
Our UHTS Yearly Haibun Competition celebrates a Festival held in Nikko Toshogo, Japan each year, which is the procession devoted to all things Samurai, including warriors wielding traditional Japanese weaponry parading through the streets. This competition is about “the strength or power of nature (including human nature)”, and whatever it means to each author. Entries could be about anything from flowers to a hurricane to any life subject, or anything at all that the poet personally perceives as a powerful force.

You are encouraged to submit in your native language in addition to your English submission.

Submission Period and Deadline: September 1-December 15 of each year.

Please see the General Submission Guidelines for further information.

Specific Guidelines for : The “Samurai” Haibun Competition

GENERAL: Please email your submissions in English in the body of an email (only) directly to Marianna.Monaco@gmail.com, with the words “UHTS “Samurai” contest” in the subject header, and include your name, country, and email address.

Do “not” use the cattails Submissions guidelines for contests.

Submission Period and Deadline: September 1-December 15 of each year.

SUBMISSIONS: Submit up to three entries, entries must be the original work of the author, be previously unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere for the entire time period it takes to complete the judging. This contest is not themed and is open to all age groups worldwide.

FORMATTING: If a poem is submitted in more than one language, we will be delighted. Please put the poem in English first, and then below that, put the poem in the other language. (Do not put the poems side by side). This will greatly facilitate the recording of your poems by the contest coordinator. If you have any problems sending your submissions by email, please let our contest coordinator know.

NOTIFICATION: The winners (only) will be notified. If you do not hear anything back from us by February 1, your entries are automatically free for you to submit elsewhere.
