Last week one of my haiku appeared on Chen-ou Liu's new bilingual blog, NeverEnding Story, where he does Chinese translations of English-language haiku and tanka. The post with my haiku, complete with translations and Chen-ou's commentary, can be found here.
I've had a few more haiku and tanka accepted and look forward to them appearing in the future. To submit your own published or unpublished haiku and/or tanka for possible inclusion on NeverEnding Story, see this link. The best haiku and tanka from this year will be put into two anthologies, plus there is a $50 prize up for grabs for the best haiku and tanka.
March is NZ Book Month and so I headed to the library this morning to hunt out novels to read over the next few weeks, written by New Zealand authors. Here's what I'll be delving into in the days to come:
The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton
Classical Music by Joy Cowley
Come Yesterday by Sue Emms
Towards Another Summer by Janet Frame
The Night Book by Charlotte Grimshaw
The Vintner's Luck by Elizabeth Knox
