Hermitage: A New English Haiku Journal


Dear haiku poets,

I plan to edit an international haiku journal called HERMITAGE. I would like to revive the spirit of the hermitage that classical Chinese and Japanese poets cultivated within their poetry. The hermitage will be a place where kindred spirits meet, exchange opinions, break down barriers, discuss, read their poems and present their ideas and books.

HERMITAGE will publish haiku, senryu, tanka, rengay, haibun, renku, haiga, essays (under 3000 words), news from the international haiku community, book reviews, interviews and many more things.
If you are interested in the HERMITAGE project, please tell me. I would like to know if there are enough interested writers to make it possible to pay for the printing and postage costs.

For the moment, you need not send me the fee for a subscription or submissions, just your answer: YES or NO.

The subscription (US$ 23 or Euro 19 - if we have more subscribers than we expected the fee will go down) for HERMITAGE - a volume with 180 pages, roughly 24 by 17cm in size - will be sent later by check payable to Ion Codrescu (home address: str.Soveja nr.25, Bl. V2, sc.B, ap. 31, 8700 Constanta, ROMANIA) when the journal is about to be printed, probably in June of 2004.

I plan to send you the first issue of the HERMITAGE at the end of June or in July. If you are interested in this project, please plan on sending me your new work. Your poems must be unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere.

HERMITAGE will be published in English.

If you have questions do not hesitate to write me. I am looking forward to hearing from you. PLEASE answer me as soon as you can. THANK you for your time.

All the best to you and your families.

In haiku spirit,
