Call for Haiku

I am now gathering haiku for the next issue of brass bell: an online haiku journal.

The title of the November collection is MORNING HAIKU.

I will consider 3-line and one-line poems.

Saturday, October 24 at 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time.
Publication date: Sunday, November 1.

Please send more than one haiku; the more choices I have, the better. 6 – 10 is probably ideal.

You do NOT have to use the word “morning” but if you want to, you can.

I’m looking for poems that create a vivid, specific image in a reader’s mind and I am hoping for a lot of variety in this collection.

A note to my haiku friends who are relatively new to this form: avoid generic/general morning haiku; send me poems that share your particular, unique experiences.


Paste your haiku in the body of an email — no attachments — and send to:

Be sure to include your name exactly as you wish it to appear, as well as your country. The list of countries will be noted at the top, not with each poem.

For this issue I’m seeking work that has not already appeared in a journal, though online publication (Facebook, your own blog or website, etc.) is fine. Basically, I don’t want to have to include “credit” memos; I want to keep everything very simple. New work is probably best. Isn’t this the perfect time to create new morning haiku??!!!??

If you haven’t yet visited the brass bell site you are in for a treat; take some time to browse through the archives and read the single-poet issues and the anthology-style issues. This will also give you a good idea of the kinds of poems I like!
