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 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]

The Summer 2015 Showcase is due to be published on the 1st of July. I’m opening it to submissions this time, and I’m looking for ‘buzz poetry’ – that’s my name for any haiku or short form of words that is in-the-moment, of-the-moment, expressive, thought-provoking, emotion-evoking, or just zen-cool.

I would like to hear from new contributors, though old friends are welcome too. Just click on the ‘Submission’ tab and email me something. It doesn’t have to be on any particular theme, so surprise me with your brilliance…
