Kokako 12 is go!

March 27, 2010

Well Kokako 12 has been sent out, and looks absolutely gorgeous, even if I do say so myself. The cover art is by Jan FitzGerald.

This time we had to increase the size from 60 pages to 64 pages, which was good in some ways (that we had enough good work to need it), but bad in others (costs more to print and to post). Oh well, swings and roundabouts.

Hope you enjoy.


Kokako 10

March 6, 2009

kokako-10-cover1Just about to send Kokako 10 off to the printers. It’s quite exciting – my first issue as co-editor! And there’s some really gorgeous work in there (although I would say that, wouldn’t I? – true, none the less).

The cover image, incidentally, is by Gina. (Her website is well worth checking out.)

It’s always interesting to see the new names appear, and watch them develop. I had a certain amount of that particular joy with the Small White Teapot haiku group. (Ah, glory days, glorious days!) And of course it was (and still is) one of the pleasures of editing the NZPS anthologies.

And now for the obligatory plug …


Kokako is New Zealand’s only haikai publication, so get in behind us! 

Sixty pages of haikai history-in-the-making can be yours for the measly sum of NZ$20 for two issues, or US$20 for two issues sent airmail anywhere in the world. 

Clicking on this link will even open a printable subscription form.





(Now how’s that for pimping?)
