*whew!* I think I deserve a drink...
A message from Simply Haiku:
Beginning with our Autumn issue we announce international non-English haiku (tanka, haiga, haibun) contests.
We feel many non-English haiku and related genres have been ignored and deserve to be shared.
Could you help us by informing us about such contests in your country or elsewhere?
Thank you very much!
Sasa Vazic and Robert D. Wilson
