Hot off the press! Serow: Journal of the Akita International Haiku Network, Vol. 1

I’ve been a judge for Akita International Haiku Network‘s Japan-Russia Haiku Contest for the past few years. This past year I undertook a mission to put all of the winning haiku and honorable mention haiku into a journal. The contest has been becoming more and more popular every year, so I thought that this would be a good way to display our success. The journal (titled Serow) may be viewed online here:

Serow, Volume 1

I taught myself how to use InDesign to get the job done. Of course this journal could have been made with any number of software products, but InDesign has a certain mystique about it!

Aside from the online addition above (complete with ISSN–woot-woot!) I made a booklet version that can be printed and used in classes:

Serow Vol. 1 Spring 2018 (Booklet Print edition)

ISSN: 2434-1711 (online edition)

*Notes for printing: please set the printer to print on BOTH sides of A4 (8.5 x 11) paper and “flip on short edge.”

I’m looking forward to improving my InDesign skills and to more projects like this!
