We're sending out acceptance notifications to poets whose works will appear in the forthcoming HAY(NA)KU ANTHOLOGY, VOL. 2, coedited by Mark Young and Jean Vengua. I'm fascinated by the geographic distribution represented by the poets who've confirmed participations so far.

In the U.S., represented states include: Vermont, California, New Jersey, New Mexico, Arizona, New York, Chicago, Ohio, Massachusetts, Iowa, Colorado...

Participating poets also come from Mexico, Sweden, Finland, New Zealand, Norway (by way of), Australia, Netherlands, England, and Canada.

The net may be widened as I hear more of who the final participant list will be....but it's already a sufficiently wide net so that, once again, I'm just surprised at where the hay(na)ku has gone.

And it's trip isn't ended yet! You are invited, Moi reminds, to get CHAINED WITH THE HAY(NA)KU!
