MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW!!!
This is an invitation to submit haiku for the June issue of brass bell: an online haiku journal. The theme is a single date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017.
You can write about ANYTHING that you experience, observe, think about, etc. during this one day.
I will consider one-line and 3-line poems.
I’ll be reading work on Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 24 (up until 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time).
Yes, the submission “window” is very tiny!!!
Publication: June 1.
If possible, please send more than one haiku; the more choices I have, the better.
DO NOT send me anything before May 23. Whatever you write, it should be ABOUT YOUR LIFE, as you experience it, on that particular date. DO NOT include the date in the haiku! Naturally, your poems will not have been previously published because they will be brand new!
NOTE: I will send an e-mail to let you know that your work has been received. If I have questions or suggestions, or if I don’t feel I can use the haiku you send, I will let you know. Otherwise, I hope you will be pleasantly surprised when you see what I’ve chosen, when the issue goes online. I will send the link to you via email at that time.
Please follow the GUIDELINES carefully and REMEMBER: I am looking for NEW HAIKU that you write on Tuesday, May 23. That’s all.
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. INCLUDE YOUR COUNTRY, even if you think I already know! The list of countries will be noted at the top, not with each poem.
If you are new to brass bell and haven’t read any previous issues please look at the current issue as well as the archives before you send me work. This will give you an idea of what the journal is like.
IMPORTANT: it is very likely that brass bell will go on a summer holiday. After the June issue you may not receive another notice until late August, with guidelines for the September issue.
