A Guide to Haiku Publications, 2008

This page contains information about publications and web sites that publish haiku.We hope this information and links are useful and informative. Special thanks to Charles Trumbull for conducting the survey and updating the data included in the Haiku Society of America Guide to Haiku Publications, 2008. This was originally published and distributed to HSA members as a supplement to the Haiku Society of America Newsletter.

Download a PDF copy of this survey, which was updated with corrections since the February 2008 supplement publication and published on the HSA web site April 1, 2008.

NOTE: Web site listing of this guide to publications has
not been systematically updated since April 1, 2008.

Note that the Haiku Society of America does not endorse these magazines and web sites. This is the result of a survey of the editors of these publications and represents sharing an opportunity for HSA member involvement rather than an official endorsement of any particular publication or its contents.


 

A Guide to Haiku Publications, 2008

There has been great turmoil in haiku publishing in the past few years. A large number of journals have ceased publication, including Cicada, Haiku Headlines, Haiku Hut, Hermitage, Hummingbird, Nisqually Delta Review, Raw NerVZ, Short Stuff, Snapshots, and Yellow Moon. Their places have been taken by new print titles that include Magnapoets, Noon, and Wisteria and many new Web journals that include Chrysanthemum, Haibun Today, Haiku Haven, Modern Haiga, Roadrunner, Sketchbook, and 3Lights Gallery. A number of publications—including heavy hitters like Acorn, Frogpond, and The Heron’s Nest—have changed editors, and others have new formats or names: for example, Haiku Canada Newsletter split into Haiku Canada Review and the now-electronic-only Haiku Canada Newsletter; Moonset changed from a journal to a tabloid newspaper format; Reeds ceased hard-copy publication in favor of electronic; and winterSpin became Kokoro. Several publications on our list are on leave: Agnieszka’s Dowry, Haiku Scotland, Lishanu, Triptych Haiku, Tundra, and World Haiku Review—temporarily, we hope.

Because of such changes, it seemed like an especially good time to take another long look at the state of haiku publishing. Our main goal was to identify publications to which HSA members might want to subscribe, in order to keep abreast of the best contemporary English-language haiku and related forms, or to submit their own work for publication. Accordingly, most entries in the list below are print or electronic journals that publish English-language haiku, though a few Web sites of a mainly informational nature are also included. Absent from our survey are online discussion groups, blogs, personal Web sites, and other self-publishing enterprises. We have also left out most journals that publish primarily in languages other than English.

With a tip of the hat to Johnye Strickland and Randy Brooks, the hard-working editor of the HSA Newsletter and the HSA Electronic Media Officer (Webmaster), respectively, we left off their HSA publications too, though we would encourage everyone to send news of haiku-related events to Johnye at <jstrickland35@comcast.net> for inclusion in the HSA news media.

We tried to contact each editor to verify the information that we had assembled about their journals. mostly from recent issues or from Web sites. A few did not respond; these included the Eastern European publications Haiku Moment (Serbia), Letni Çasi / Seasons (Slovenia), Orfeu / Orpheus (Romania), Ulitka / Snail (Russia), and Vrabac / Sparrow (Croatia). Because these journals are on the margins of English-language haiku publishing anyway, we have simply left them out of this survey. Titles of other publications for which we have not been able to verify information are marked with three asterisks (***); prospective subscribers or submitters should proceed with caution.

This version of the Guide contains some corrections and additions from the one that was circulated to HSA members. Surely I have still missed some worthy publications, however, and I’d be pleased to learn of any errors or omissions. You can contact me at <trumbullc @comcast.net>.   —Charles Trumbull

My preference is the 12± syllable ‘modern’ form and for haiku that don’t simply imitate the Japanese but reflect English usage and Western place/cultural/social references. We look for work rooted in the haiku tradition, its immediacy of images, but the more innovative the better!”
