Call For Submissions: An Anthology of English-Language Haiku by Women

Yesterday I finally got organised and sent off my submission to this exciting new anthology being edited by Aubrie Cox (my submission for week 14 of 2011).

Seeking haiku and senryu for an anthology focusing on excellent English-language haiku by women around the world. Ladies, send 5-15 of your best haiku, published or unpublished, to: paperlanternhaiku (at) gmail (dot) com. With your submission, please include your name, country, a brief bio of 150 words or less, and any applicable publication credits of submitted poems. Nominations of poets and individual poems are also welcome, and strongly encouraged. Deadline: April 15.

It had come to my attention when searching that there is not an anthology of just women's English-language haiku (none that I've found anyway). With such prolific and powerful women writers within the English-language community, they deserve a space/recognition of their own.
