Submissions

Please submit your best haiku, senryu, tanka, haiga, haibun, or shahai to haikucommentary@gmail.com

How to Submit

  • Write “Submission” in the subject line.
  • No more than 10 poems submitted per month per poet.
  • Previously published work is acceptable (and even encouraged), though please mention the previous publications so I can mention them in the post.
  • Indicate your full name, and your country of residence.
  • You can indicate your Twitter account, so I can mention you in our Twitter feed.

The usual wait period for replies is 30 days or less. If I see work that does not fit, I often try to workshop poems to make them better.

About the Commentary

  • Commentary is published on a weekly basis (we try our best).
  • There are two options: 1) we write commentary on your poem, 2) or you can submit commentary on your own poem or someone else’s poem (expect editorial comments in reply).
  • You retain your full copyright.
  • It will be shared via Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

What We are Looking for

  • Poetry that has feeling, mystery, and resonance.
  • All styles and forms, except for erotic poems. We want people of all ages to read the posts.
  • Poetry that allows for repeated readings.
