A brand new haiku journal


a journal for new haiku

a brand new haiku journal, which is seeking for all kind of a haiku style:
“Gendai haiku / New haiku i.e haiku written from, within, for the 21st century and based in/sprung from the haijin's cultural, linguistic and historic reality. Haiku that takes the language seriously enough to be willing to blow it apart from the inside in order to show/discover/reveal new meanings and echoes. Haiku that stands on the firm ground of tradition but has internalized it and is now written for today and the future. Exploitative haiku. Connective haiku. In the West haiku can be fruitfully pollinated by what is called fragmentary poetry/short poetry/micro poetry. We are constantly asking the question: what is haiku in the 21st century and what can it become if it's not to fall in with the carpet and be a neat little thing you do with your left hand and read on get well-cards? ... if it's not to repeat the already repeated stuff. Single haiku & serial haiku. Haiku that dares claim its own language, imagery, space and now. Experiments of every kind. Surreal haiku. Fantastic haiku. Conceptual haiku in both form and content."
