A list of literary journals where my poems have been published.
BLITHE SPIRIT is the quarterly print journal of the British Haiku Society. Each edition aligns a selection of haiku with the current season while also featuring haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, and linked forms submitted by members from all over the world.
Toward the back of the journal you’ll usually find a series of essays discussing contemporary and traditional haiku practices, techniques of the masters, plus the history and development of the haiku form. There is normally a selection of reviews introducing the latest chapbook and poetry collections.
My poem ‘Along the Rural Road’ was published in Blithe Spirit Volume 29 Number 1 (Winter 2019).

Although it is common to find constrained forms of Haiku, counting morae and marking the kigo etc., 50 Haikus looks only to the content of the poem: short lines with meaning. Poems should say a great deal in what amounts to a handful of words.
