Jim Kacian: Tapping the Common Well

Johannes S. H. Bjerg: Interview with Grant Hackett (originally published in Multiverses 2012)


Bones has decided to open up for hosting small book of haiku as ebooks (pdf). This is done to help make available collections/projects that are in line with the editorial profile of the haiku journal; works that might be elsewhere on the web as well but deserve a wider audience. Hopefully these books/projects will serve as inspiration and be of interest for readers and writers of haiku,

Submission: We accept submissions for this ”corner” of Bones at any time; i.e. the submission dates for the journal doesn't apply here. If you have a small book/project of haiku you would like to share here you may submit to submission[at]bonesjournal[dot].com. The book can have a maximum of haiku at around 30.


  • haiku/haiku projects of the "style/genre/kind" the journal brings
  • Max around 30 poems
