Directory of Haiku Magazines
last updated December 11, 2018

Millikin University students and others are encouraged to read, subscribe to and submit their original work to haiku magazines.

One of the best sources of information about current contemporary haiku magazines and web sites is located at:

Haiku Poetry Links, Guide to Internet and Print Resources, edited by Michael P. Garofalo, also has a comprehensive set of links with helpful descriptions.

Of course, the best way to learn about any publication is to purchase a sample issue or to subscribe to it.

General submission tips:

Most magazines only want 5-10 haiku per submission and will not consider hand-written submissions.

Most magazines are now only reveiwing e-mail submissions, but please include your snail mail address in the submission if you expect to be paid or hope to receive contributor copies.

Find the haiku magazines you enjoy reading and submit to them. The goal is not to twist your work to fit the magazine, but to find the magazine (and its readers) who will appreciate your work.

If submitting by snail mail, always include a SASE (self-adressed stamped envelope) for the editor's reply.

The following magazines are currently seeking haiku, tanka and related haikai poetry.


If you are the editor of a magazine not listed, please send a sample copy and information about your magazine so that we can add it to our listing. Sample magazines are appreciated and shared by students learning the art of writing and reading haiku. Send your magazine samples or details to:
