Alan Summers, Linked Forms Editor, Notes from the Gean

Featuring some of the best haikai literature and tanka around the world; special features on what makes a haiku poem; and reviews of books from The New York Quarterly's Yu Yan Chen; and Croatian poet Tomislav Maretic; plus my interview with Jack Galmitz.

This was said of Jack Galmitz:

With much talk of haiku needing reconceptualization and/or reform, it is ironically refreshing to find an approach that relies much on the imagination while at the same time being grounded in classic poetic devices to potentially reinvigorate the English-language canon. Jack Galmitz’s haiku poetry steps far outside the humdrum of what I’ll call, “the haiku template.”
