ANTHOLOGY WE ARE ALL JAPAN



ALL INFORMATION CONCERNING THE ANTHOLOGY PROGRESS WILL BE POSTED HERE.

We hope to establish a team of editors per each category: haiku, tanka, haibun, non-Japanese poetry, and artwork/photography.

The deadline for submission is May 15, 2011. After that, the team of editors will select among the works submitted. Due to the large number of submissions we have received so far, and those we expect to be submitted by the deadline, we won't be able to inform each author regarding acceptance of his/her submission, but only those whose work has been accepted.
We still need stories from Japan as well as more haibun.
We'd appreciate any amount of donation for the printing costs of the anthology and to the people of Japan.
The cost of a copy of the anthology will be posted here as soon as we gather all the information from the publisher.  


Thank you for your support!

  2. How may I assist with the editing team? I have been an editor in my past life but am now retired. I've not done a lot of poetry work to date. Still, I understand layout and accuracy and am quick and careful.

    Regarding getting a publisher - one of the template publishers (Tikatok) periodically does pro-bono work, usually through libraries such as Boston Library.

    The other strategy would be to contact major publishers with the understanding that the proceeds go to Red Cross or Salvation Army or both - and that they can get this as a charitable deduction and public relations opportunity if they so wish.

    (That's asking quite an investment, but it's worth a shot.)

    I hope this is helpful. Kathy in the Wallowas
