By submitting, you acknowledge all work is original, unpublished, and not under consideration elsewhere (i.e., no simultaneous submissions please). We consider poems on the internet (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, blogs) to be previously published.

  2. Your submission can include up to ten (10) haiku, three (3) haibun, three (3) rengay or other short sequences (including alternate forms of rengay and split sequence), and one (1) renku. You may submit any or all of these forms as part of your single submission (single email). Please make sure to include both your first and last name as you wish it to appear in print, as well as your place of residence (city, state) for our author index.
