Haiku Journals

Page history last edited by Shelley 12 years, 2 months ago

For many years, and for various reasons, I have been relatively disinterested in seeking publication of my writing.   


Lately (Jan '08) I have been thinking about maybe seeing if I can get some of my haiku "out there" in some way.  (Although as soon as I started thinking that way my haiku flow took a big hit.  Coincidence?  Hmmm....)


Anyway, I'm collecting options here:


Acorn - http://home.earthlink.net/~missias/Acorn.html (Carolyn Hall, ed.)


Acorn publishes in October and April; submissions are due by the end of August and February, respectively.




Atlas Poetica - http://www.modernenglishtankapress.com/atlaspoetica/submit.html


Atlas Poetica 2, 2008 — Submissions will open on 1 March and close on 31 May, 2008.

Atlas Poetica 3, 2009 — Submissions will open on 1 September and close on 30 November, 2008.

            Please send no less than 5 and no more than 10 haiku, senryu or related poems. Any submission of more than 10 poems will not be reviewed or returned.  There should be no more than 5     poems per 8 1/2" x 11" page. Do not send, for example, 5 poems on 5 separate sheets of paper. 5 poems go on one sheet.


            Each page should be typed and have the name,address, and e-mail (if you have one) of the author in the top right corner.


            Cover letters: It is highly recommended that poets submitting work for the first time include a cover letter.

             No simultaneous, previously published material, and/or work that has "appeared" anywhere in the universe please for any reason. That means in newsletters, websites, e-zines, blogs, discussion groups, contests, programs, flyers, any thing you can possible think of. Even if it is printed somewhere and the editor of that publication doesn't consider it "published" WE DO. If it has "appeared in public" or been published, do not send it.
