Last month was spring at its best – and worst! Torrential rain, even snow in the South Island, as well as periods of soaring temperatures. Today, is warm but damp so goodness knows what summer has in store for us. But whatever the weather is doing, Christmas is coming! So let me wish all of you a very happy and safe Christmas and I hope to see you back here again in 2019. It’s hard to believe that it will be my 14th year as editor!
I’m looking forward to having the Fourth NZ Haiku Anthology in my hands early next year. Margaret and I are very pleased with the content so now we want to do our best to make the volume look and feel great.
The Contest listing has been updated to the beginning of March. Please remember that it’s refreshed as information comes to hand so it’s always worth checking back during the month.
I’m delighted to add Jenny Fraser to the Haiku Showcase page – see her page here or have a look at the index of all authors featured. Jenny is a former longtime Waikato resident who now lives in Mount Maunganui.
Happy reading! And I look forward to seeing you back here in 2019.
