SUBMIT

Due to editorial pressures as a result of pandemic, until Spring 2022, we are currently limiting submissions to haiku only. We will return to accepting a wider range of material (haibun, sequences, special feature proposals) in the near future. 

We publish 4 issues a year, with the following submission deadlines for haiku:

  • Spring issue published in April (submission window: 1 February - 31 March)

  • Summer issue published July (submission deadline: 1 May - 30 June)

  • Autumn issue published in October (submission deadline: 1 August - 30 September)

  • Winter issue published in January (submission deadline: 1 November - 31 December) 

Submitted work should follow these guidelines:

  • Work submitted may be on any theme or subject, but works that embody the nature tradition of both haiku and Welsh    poetry are of particular interest.

  • Poems submitted should be unpublished and not under consideration elsewhere.

  • Please submit 5-10 poems at a time.

  • Please submit haiku once only for each issue. 

  • Poems should all be included in the body of your email, and not attached as a .doc or .pdf file.

  • Submissions of haiga/photo haiku should not contain any word/image credits in the works themselves.

  • We aim to respond to all submissions within a few weeks, but during busier reading periods responses may take 6-8 weeks. All poets will receive a notification if their work has been accepted or not.

  • Suggestions for essays and reviews are also welcome. Please direct any queries to the Editor at the email address below.

Please send your work to: waleshaikujournal@gmail.com

Best of luck with your submissions. We very much looking forward to receiving them.
