Haiga News – New Haiga Editor, Sandi Pray


With this issue we say farewell to Aubrie Cox and welcome to Sandi Pray, our new Haiga Editor. Aubrie has been haiga editor for A Hundred Gourds from our sixth issue in March 2013 to this, our current and seventeenth issue in December 2015. The AHG team wishes Aubrie all the best in her future endeavours.

Aubrie writes: “I want to thank you for your submissions over the last three years. It's been a privilege and I've learned so much about haiga and myself in reviewing your work. I'm stepping down from the haiga editor position a much more competent and articulate artist, writer and editor. It was not an easy decision to leave, but it's time for me to move on to other things.”

We are very fortunate to have Sandi, who is an accomplished haiga artist and has previously been a media teacher, on the AHG team ​ as Haiga Editor​. Please see our Editors’ Page for Sandi’s bio and our submissions page for Sandi’s guidelines for haiga submissions for the March 2016 issue of A Hundred Gourds onwards. The AHG email address to send your haiga submissions to remains the same as it always has been. The deadline for the March 2016 issue of A Hundred Gourds is December 15th, 2015.
