Please submit in January for the spring issue and in July for the fall issue.
Thanks very much for your interest. And for writing!
We accept publications via a Google Form.

We only publish haiku and senyru. If accepted, we strive to present your work in a way that will make you proud. Our print journal is 5.5 x 6 inches, on heavy gloss paper and with much use of color.  No more than two haiku appear on a page. Our issues present 44 poems. Here is a video by our editor Michael Dylan Welch with samples from our first issue, which will give you an idea of the kind of work we publish. Please have a look before submitting so you will know what we publish. In each issue, we feature a "best of issue" poem which wins the author a free copy of the issue, a 1-year subscription, and publication of 10 of their poems in our "Ten haiku by..." online chapbooks.

We only consider previously unpublished haiku or senryu. However, We consider haiku posted on your own social media accounts.
We do not adhere to the 5/7/5 rule. At all. We are open to 1, 2, & 3 lines (and other configurations.)
We do not publish poems that include the phrase "first frost."
No titles with poems, please.
Submit up to 3 haiku or senryu during a reading period.

We accept submissions in January for the Spring issue and July for the Fall issue.

Our editors intend to notify all submitters of our decision within 6 weeks after the close of a submission period. We apologize in advance for the wait. We routinely get 650-750 poems per submission period.

too long to respond
many haiku in inbox
nice problem to have
