The Summer 2017 Showcase is now published…

1… better late than never!

We have some absolute delights for you this time, and a complete mixture of poetic and prose forms, which is something I have been aiming for since the zen space began. And do you know what? It’s our sixth birthday! the zen space has been going for six years.

In order to read the new Showcase, hover your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab, and scroll down the drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can click here.

Time to blow out some candles!

The Summer 2017 Showcase will be a little late.

clockYes, thank you Salvador, I know the clock is melting. You don’t have to tell me!

I’ve never allowed a publication date to slip by before, here at the zen space, but a combination of circumstances will mean that this one will be a handful of days late. Can’t say precisely when it will appear, but you may rest assured that it won’t be more than a few days after the normal date. I have some wonderful submissions to consider in the mean time. Thank you all for sending them in.

The Autumn 2016 Showcase is now published

cote-6-mother-and-son-at-selfoss-detailWe have a wonderful Showcase this time, thanks to our Guest Editor Ray Sharp. He has brought a fresh approach to the zen space – fewer contributors but more poems from each of them, plus some wonderful artwork by Cynthia Coté, with an Icelandic theme.

To visit the Showcase, hover your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab and scroll down, or go here.

If you’re a new visitor, why not have a ramble through our archives.

Big news! For the Autumn Showcase…

Ray… we have Ray Sharp as Guest Editor. Ray is one of the good guys of poetry. He’s from Michigan, from the shores of Lake Superior in fact, which he calls “a land of long snowy winters and brief glorious summers”.

Any submissions coming in in the next month or so will be forwarded to Ray. One of his tasks, as guest editor, will be to seek out new names, new talent for the zen space, so he will be making enquiries of his own.

We still have the suggested theme of ‘mountain’, but we also have a fine reservoir of poems outside that theme. Ray has all but insisted that I submit something myself. I’m toying with the idea, even though it would break my unwritten policy of not making the zen space a self-centred farrago. What do you think?

Anyhow, stay tuned, keep that dial locked to WTZS, Stanton, Michigan…

The Summer 2016 Showcase is now published!

It’s the first day of July, and here in Scotland it does not really start to get dark until after 10pm  – to us it seems like the evening is a time for doing things, walking round our garden, studying the sky, going for a drive. But I’m sure you’ll find time to read the Summer 2016 Showcase. It is full of energy thanks to the visual offerings by KANIHA and the words of the many fine poets and haijin who have contributed this time.

To visit the Showcase, please hover your pointer over ‘Experience’ and scroll down, or click here

… and ENJOY!

Enjoy [6]
