My daughter...the poet!
I'm having a proud Mom moment! We downloaded a copy of Berry Blue Haiku with Katherine's first published poetry in it. And guess what... you can get a copy of Berry Blue Haiku for free if you haven't registered at currclick.com yet! If you have registered it will only cost $1.75 to download. Berry Blue Haiku is full of wonderful haiku poems including two written by my Katherine! December's issue also has how to make a Haiku holiday gift bag, lessons on writing Haiku poems, adorable Berry Blue Haiku Bookmarks, a Haikreature Feature (a Haiku and a factual featured animal), a hidden picture, and loads of lovely illustrations.
Berry Blue Haiku has a resourceful blog and the nicest executive editor. (Hi, Gisele!) Berry Blue Haiku is a paying market for adults, but you don't have to be an adult to submit. Katherine even won a book from the people at Cobalt Crow Productions! There are adult submission guidelines, student guidelines, and illustrator guidelines. Don't be shy...submit to Berry Blue Haiku! (Talk about a fun on the tongue title...)
And now I'll leave you with a couple of Katherine's poems...
(I had her permission to post these two.)
Lurks in the darkness
of Loch Ness
In the woods
Concealed in foliage
Happy writing everyone!
I hope you'll stretch yourself
and try something new...
perhaps you'll even write a Haiku...
