The 2013 Red Moon anthology – fear of dancing – is well into production with a planned delivery date of February 1. Having read all the works included more than once (I’m a volunteer proof-reader, as well as a member of the editorial team), I can say that it is going to be a darn fine collection.
The annual publication aims at collecting “the best” haiku published in English in any calendar year, as decided by the vote of the group of editors. It’s quite a complex business that is managed impeccably by overseeing editor and Red Moon owner Jim Kacian.
I’m happy to report that there are seven New Zealanders in the collection this year – and they are there because their work is outstanding. I’ll post more when the volume is available, this is just to whet your appetite!
