This is an invitation to submit haiku for the October 2017 issue of brass bell: an online haiku journal.
Theme: body haiku
(haiku about parts of the body)
Include reference to some body part (or the whole body) in your poem(s). Could be related to your body, or to someone else’s.
I will consider one-line and 3-line haiku.
I STRONGLY PREFER new work but previously published poems are okay as long as they do NOT require a credit line (attribution).
PLEASE send more than one poem! I will be looking for variety and the more choices I have, the better. Send up to 10 haiku for consideration.
Wednesday, September 20, 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time.
HINT: it is better to send sooner rather than later!
Expected publication date: Sunday October 1, 2017
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. PLEASE don’t forget to include your country, especially if you do not live in the U.S.A.
If you haven’t been to the brass bell site before then I urge you to visit; read the current issue and browse through the archives. This will also give you a good idea of what I am most drawn to.
Please do not post this invitation to groups, I don’t want to be overwhelmed! THANK YOU.
NOTE: I’ll acknowledge receipt of your submission. If I have questions or suggestions, or if I don’t feel I can use the haiku you sent, I will let you know. Otherwise, I hope you will be pleasantly surprised when you see what I have chosen, when the issue goes online. I’ll send you the link as soon as I publish the October issue.
I look forward to reading your Body Haiku!
