Open to Submissions !

Pure Haiku is currently OPEN to Submissions.

The THEME is MONSTER.

But this time, you are not allowed to use the words Monster or Monstrous 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 Monster.

There so many different slants on this theme. Please explore them all and surprise me!

The DEADLINE for submissions is 20th October 2017 at midnight.

MONSTER themed haiku written in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site in November & December 2017.

Please explore any meaning of MONSTER – I will accept both haiku and senyru.

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: –

One sentence introducing yourself. Be quirky and interesting – you want people to visit your blog, don’t you?!

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.

    Welcome back, Freya! “Monster” is a good Halloween-y theme 🙂

      Thank you, Christy! The theme tying in with Halloween was a coincidence! It’s interesting that so far this week, all the submissions of haiku on this theme have been from men….!
