What are we looking for?

We want to showcase work that captures the extraordinary in the ordinary through haiku, senryu and haiga/Photo Haiku submissions. In line with our group guidelines at THE DAILY HAIKU we welcome all approaches (both 5-7-5 and non-5-7-5) to haiku, senryu and haiga/Photo Haiku. We encourage creativity and experimentation.

‘The Power of Juxtaposition’ by Ferris Gilli from the New Zealand Poetry Society really helps explain the importance of the cut with helpful examples showing ‘how to achieve meaningful juxtaposition’ where’ach part of a haiku must have no fundamental connection with the other part’.

Looking forward to your submissions.
