Guidelines for 2019 Haiku Issue

 

Guest Editor: Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco
Deadline March 1, 2019

Publication online April 2019

 

We are looking for poems that fall within the tradition of English-language haiku and senryu. If you are not familiar with the kinds of haiku and senryu being written in English, here are a few sites to explore that will give you a sense of what we are looking for:

 

Modern Haiku

frogpond

The Haiku Foundation

Issa’s Untidy Hut

tinywords

Failed Haiku

Prune Juice

is/let

 

We are looking for poems that have not previously been published in print or online journals or books. However, we are happy to consider work that has been previously posted to personal blogs or social media.

 

Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you withdraw your work if it is accepted elsewhere. Once we accept your work, we expect that you will withdraw it from consideration elsewhere.

 

On our Submittable, you'll find a boxes for your cover letter, your poems and your bio. Remember, we like very brief bios. Don't include an exhaustive list of publications. We prefer "recent work has appeared in..."

.

Please submit 1 - 10 haiku and/or senryu.

 

Submit via Submittable here.

 

You will receive a response to your submission no later than March 20, 2019.
