From Katha:

Katha will soon be venturing into the world of poetry, with the fond hope of bringing out two poetry ebooks this year, which would include: A PDF ebook of contemporary verses and a PDF ebook of haiku, tanka, senryu, haibun and haiga.
For the poetry collection, we look forward to poems from any linguistic culture written originally in English, or translated from any regional language/bhasha. We will consider variant forms on an individual basis in both traditional and innovative verse of high quality.
You are invited to submit your poems for the 2009/10 issue of Katha, a PDF ebook. The submission deadline is October 1, 2009. Submissions will not close earlier than the deadline.
Previously unpublished work, not on offer elsewhere, is solicited. There won’t be any payment for publication.
Set up in 1988, Katha is a profit-for-all voluntary organization that works in the areas of education, publishing and community development. Our main objective is to spread the joy of reading among adults and children. Known for quality of production and authenticity of translation, Katha focuses on English translations from twenty-one Indian languages, both in adult and children’s categories. Our oeuvre of fiction includes short stories, novellas and novels by the great Indian masters as well as by emerging and avant-garde storytellers, while our academic and nonfiction titles are designed to facilitate a critical understanding of various facets of life and literature.
