Prune Juice Book of Senryu
This collection celebrates 10 years of the finest English Senryu from around the world by 85 of our TOP Contributors, featuring 337 poems plucked from the journal’s first 29 issues by past and current Prune Juice editors.
Since 2009, Prune Juice is honored to have published over 700 poets and artists, showcasing tens of thousands of their wittiest and most poignant Senryu, Kyoka, Haibun, and Haiga. During the course of researching the anthology project, we discovered there’s a group of dedicated contributors who’ve been publishing with us, issue after issue, year after year, editor after editor, many going back to our earliest days in print. While we celebrate ALL of the poets who’ve found a home in our pages over the past decade, it is our “TOP Contributors” of the Prune Juice family that this anthology serves to spotlight.
You will meet these esteemed poets chronologically, in the order of their first appearance with the journal — inaugural issue artists in the front, progressing through the book to the newest contributors closing the collection. Each author’s selection is arranged to give you a sample senryu from her/his earliest appearance to the most recent. Introducing each selection, you’ll also find the author’s total number of issues with PJ, to help celebrate their long-standing contributions to the genre.
Thank YOU for celebrating PJ’s first 10 years with us — and for toasting to our next 10 years! Please enjoy, explore alone, read aloud, or share with a crowd!
