Guidelines for Winter Haiku Issue 2021


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


The Haiku Foundation

Issa’s Untidy Hut


Failed Haiku

Prune Juice


You can take a look our haiku issue from last year:


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.


Please submit 1 - 10 haiku and/or senryu.


Submit via the Submittable system. 



Reading begins November 15, 2020. All submissions due January 1, 2021. You will receive a response to your submission no later than January 15, 2021.
