Pure Haiku is Open to Submissions!

1 January, 2018

Happy New Year to you all! Hope you had a lovely Christmas! Just wanted to let you know that …

Pure Haiku is currently OPEN to Submissions.

The THEME is OCEAN.

But this time, you are not allowed to use the words Ocean/s or Sea/s in your haiku/senyru (and you cannot use these words in the title, if you choose to provide titles for your submissions). I want to receive haiku/senyru that are implicit in their mentions of Ocean.

Explore the Ocean from its darkest depths to its farthest sandy shores. Wherever and whatever the Ocean touches is suitable matter for your haiku. Paint me vivid pictures of what sails on the Ocean, what swims and lives in it, what land it touches, its legends and myths…

This time I am restricting the amount of haiku to be published. There will be 20 slots for individual haiku plus a week’s slot for a single featured haiku writer.

The DEADLINE for submissions is 19th January 2018 at midnight.

OCEAN themed haiku written in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site in February & March 2018.

How to submit to Purehaiku

If you would like to submit your haiku for publication on this site, please send a maximum of 5 haiku written in the classical form on the current theme to: –

By submitting your haiku you confirm that you are the author of the work and that you give me permission to publish your work at Pure Haiku. The copyright remains with you, the author.

Please send me each haiku with just one or two lines of spacing between each one in the body of your email.

When you have emailed your submission, you should receive an auto reply informing you of the date when I will be in contact with you. If you do not receive an auto reply within 24 hours, please feel free to send a second email enquiring about your original submission.

I can only accept haiku for consideration if they are EMAILED to me at the above mentioned address. Please DO NOT submit haiku via the comments box or via a facebook message or via G+ messaging.

Please do not send attachments. I can only accept haiku that are submitted in the body of the email.

August Rewards for my Patreon supporters will be available in a couple of weeks!
In August, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished poem about a personal situation that broke my heart but ended happily, and/or a story set in Dracomagan’s world. This tale tells of a lovelorn carpenter and how he meets a dancer who changes his life forever…
Mermaids, magic and mythology… These were the themes of the poem and short story that were my July Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st August, you will be able to access the August Rewards.
Each month I produce a specially crafted poem and an unusual short story for my supporters at Patreon. Both the poem and short story are previously unpublished. The poem usually covers an A4 side and the short story is a minimum of 2,000 words long.
