Introduction to Haiga


Simply Haiku accepts haiga submissions every three months. Submissions may include all styles of haiga from traditional brushwork to photographic and computer generated art, or other mixed mediums, but the haiku or tanka must adhere to the traditional s/l/s (s/l/s/l/l) metric schemata indigenous to haiku (tanka).  

Haiga Submission Guidelines:

1. Submit no less than 10 haiga per submission period.

2. Haiku or tanka words (in English only) as well as the author’s name must be embedded in the haiga image.

3. Images should be in JPEG format (600 x 800 pixels, 72dpi).

4. Send your haiga in attachment. Include works titles and your name and country in the body  of e-mail with the subject line: “Simply Haiku haiga submission.”

5. Authors whose works are accepted for publication will be asked to send their short, five line bio and a photo.
