I'm really happy to have a haiku published in the first ever issue of Wales Haiku Journal. Edited by Paul Chambers, the journal is free to read online and they've just launched their inaugural edition.

The event starts at 6pm, and entry is priced at £5. You can find out more by going to the Facebook event page:
