In other words:
Miranda Doerfler and I are putting together a collection of Zombie Haiku to be published later this summer. We’re accepting submissions until June 8th.
The best Zombie Haikus will be assembled into a print book, while I believe our current plan is to publish all submitted Haiku in an e-book that will be made available for free to authors (and with free codes they’re allowed to share, once we get through KDP and move to Smashwords.). (Miranda, correct me if I’m wrong on any of this.)
So. Submit your Zombie Haiku to Haiku Of The Living Dead. And stay tuned. You never know when we might need your braaaaains…
Edit: I left out the most important part. While Miranda, myself and our graphic designer will be earning capped profit-share fees, we’re also dedicated to making this a pay-it-forward-and-make-the-world-a-better-place endeavor. We are therefore in search of charities to support, with current possibilities including:
– general relief in Haiti
– general relief in Japan
– disease relief associations
-Hospice (international organization suggestions requested)
-Children’s hospice (again, suggestions requested)
– Get-Out-the-Vote (“waking the politically dead)
– Other ideas
We plan to put the final propositions up to a vote. Keep checking back, or weigh in with your preferances/suggestions in the comments.
have been suggested. We have also discussed malaria netting/disease-spread prevention ideas, and the notion of contributing in support of the cleanup in Japan. Miranda and I welcome ideas from anyone who would like to put something forward on this front. Not sure how we’re going to decide yet, but stay tuned to the blog and to twitter for further discussion.
Edit 2: Posting a haiku in the comments will, as of 5/29/2012 be read as permission to use your haiku in the collection. We hope to collect author names, twitter handles and websites for each contributor. Please include this information with your submission.
