2015 Members' Anthology: A Splash of Water
I'm delighted to announce that the 2015 HSA Members' Anthology, A Splash of Water, is all finished and has been mailed to members. This year's editor, Catherine J. S. Lee, has done an excellent job in her selection of haiku, in the book's unique thematic arrangement (based on forms of water), and in the overall design and attractive cover. I'm sure that you'll agree with me, when you receive your copy, that this year's anthology is a real treasure.
As we did with last year's anthology, we've made the book available as a print-on-demand paperback, just in time for your Christmas shopping. The book is priced at a mere $6.00 a copy. If you order copies from the CreateSpace store, $2.56 of royalties will flow directly into the HSA bank account. If you order it through Amazon.com, only $1.36 goes into the HSA coffers. You can take a sneak peek at the cover on both websites and, if you like, order a copy or two (or ten!):

(For example, “HSA 2016: David G. Lanoue, New Orleans LA USA”).
Submissions should be typed or pasted into the email message, single-spaced, with one blank line between each poem. Please do not use columns or tables.

For U.S. submissions, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for notification of which poem is selected.
For international submissions, please note that International Reply Coupons (IRCs) are no longer accepted by the U.S. Postal Service. Instead, please include a self-addressed envelope and a $1 U.S. bill to cover postage (we hope this is cheaper to acquire than a money order).
