The contest anthology of the 27th ITO EN Oi Ocha New Haiku Contest is out now.
The 2016 anthology is called Jiyu-Katari, which means “free-talking” and contains all of the winning poems and honourable mentions in all categories, as well as information on the contest judges, the company and their products.
This year, I was honoured to recieve the judges award in the English language category. My poem is found on page 23 of the book. Last year a poem of mine recieved an honourable mention in the ITO EN Oi Ocha New Haiku Contest.
