fish in love

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 3:08 pm

Frequent visitors may recall that haikuEsq did a little nagging last February — asking fellow haijin to join the Haiku Society of America and members to submit poems for inclusion in this year’s annual members’ anthology (which comes free with membership).    Well, the f/k/a Gang is pleased to announce the publication and arrival of:

FishInLove fish in love: Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2006 (edited by Roberta Beary and Ellen Compton).  Many thanks to Ellen and Roberta for all their editorial efforts.

fish in love didn’t achieve the size we had hope for in February, but it is nonetheless the largest anthology collection of members’ haiku to date — containing 228 poems from 228 members.   You can order a copy for $10 (for shipment in the US) or $12 (international), payable by check or money order to Paul Miller, HSA Treasurer.  Mail it to Paul at 31 Seal Island Road, Bristol, RI 02809-5186

update: As we report on August 2, 2007, the judges of the HSA Merit Books Awards for 2007 gave fish in love the Special Category Honorable Mention Award for Anthology.

Here are a few from some of f/k/a‘s Honored Guests:  HSALogo
