Wednesday Haiku: Call For Submissions

From Editor, Don Wentworth:

Just a note to you all who know about the weekly "Wednesday Haiku" postings at Issa's Untidy Hut.

Over the last 14 months or so, the Wednesday Haiku posting has featured the work of two haiku poets. This was done largely to a backlog I had, which had been causing people an inordinate wait for their haiku to see the light of day. Publishing twice as many a week halved the wait. 

At this juncture, however, the coffers are getting a tad low. I can always revert to one poem per week, but feel two poems creates a different dynamic, one of more interest to the reader and to myself as editor. 

So, this is a general call for haiku for the Wednesday feature, as always one poem at a time: 

Here's the deal - every Wednesday, I publish one or two original haiku on the blog, Issa's Untidy Hut.  Electronic submissions only, with the following caveat:

Send one (one only) original haiku

That's one original haiku per poet.  I will reply in a timely manner, with simply a yeah or nay. Poets whose poems are accepted will receive the 2 current issues of Lilliput Review or a 2 issue extension of their current subscription if s/he already subscribes. Send your original haiku to: 


Once the haiku is accepted or rejected, you may send another.  Otherwise, only one submission of one haiku per poet at a time.  I believe I said one, is that right?

Feel free to share this email with haiku-writing friends or on Facebook haiku groups, and likewise on Twitter, etc.

Thanks very much.


I'm excited to have just had a haiku accepted by Don for the "Wednesday Haiku" after responding to this call. So get into it folks! Don is a very approachable editor and generally gets back to you quickly. See you there!
