November, December—three months of Sketchbook. In
September the idea of a e-zine for eastern and western short
verse forms seemed like a distant dream. Would there be
interest? Would we get submissions? …and so we announced the
launch; Karina Klesko and I have been quite busy ever since.
As the final
days of 2006 play out I want to send each writer a greeting and
best wishes for 2007. I look forward to a new season of
Sketchbook projects and the ever interesting submissions we
receive from you poets.
January 2007 kukai submit to
OutlawPoets one to three FREE FORMAT haiku on the theme
January weather. In a FREE FORMAT themed haiku there are no
exact word requirements. Since the writers in the OutlawPoets
group are from various regions of the world the haiku thread
will reflect various world wide January weather conditions. This
will offer poets and readers a variety of meteorological
differences. The only requirement is that the haiku be about the
theme of January weather in the region where the poet lives. For
the convenience of the reader indicate the geographical location
on a line below the author’s name. Please submit only three
poems. The poems may be submitted at different times—it is not
necessary to submit the three poems at the same time.
