Featured Haiku Writer – From June 2022 there will now be TWO Featured Haiku Writers per theme. To be in with a chance of being selected for these slots (you get all FIVE of your haiku published on consecutive days either at the beginning of the themed selection, or at the end) make sure you send in five outstanding haiku on the theme whenever Pure Haiku is OPEN to submissions.
Even if you have had haiku published on this site before, please still include all this information as I do not keep any details of previous submissions. By including all the required details it makes my life easier when scheduling haiku. Thank you.
