Forthcoming from Meritage Press, xPress(ed) and Paloma Press this fall is HAY(NA)KU 15, in celebration of hay(na)ku’s 15th anniversary! The hay(na)ku is a Filipino diasporic, tercet-based poetic form invented by Eileen Tabios. As Eileen wittily writes in The FilAm Magazine: “Poetry! / It’s short. / Only 6 words.”
In other news, the St. Helena Star just announced the release of “ONE, TWO, THREE: SELECTED HAY(NA)KU POEMS,” a bilingual poetry collection by St. Helena local poet Eileen Tabios (glad that Paloma Press could be part of it!)
There will be a HAY(NA)KU reading and celebration (with birthday cake!) at the San Francisco Public Library, Latino/Hispanic Meeting Room, on September 8th at 1 PM, and an exhibit at the St. Helena Public Library in December. Stay tuned for more details!
