From: Patrick M. Pilarski:

Dear Readers, Friends, and Contributors,

We are thrilled to announce that submissions are open for DailyHaiku's eleventh publishing cycle! This coming cycle represents the start of our sixth year of publishing as an online daily periodical. During Cycle 10, we were excited to see an increase in readership for both our online and print editions. Traffic to  topped 100,000 hits per month, with up to 4000 unique visitors.

We now invite you to submit some of your best work for possible inclusion in our upcoming cycle (Cycle 11). If you are interested in becoming a Cycle 11 contributor, please see our submission call below. (And please feel free to forward this call on to any other interested parties.)

You may notice that our Spring submissions are open a month early this year. That's because in addition to planning a new cycle, DailyHaiku is also planning a wedding! Your faithful editors are getting married this Spring (to each other, of all people) so we're trying our best to be proactive in our editorial duties.

Thank you once more for helping to make DailyHaiku a lively and dynamic environment to showcase contemporary short form poetry!

All the best,
Patrick and Nicole
