Calls for Holiday Haiku, December 2

Four and Twenty would like to celebrate the holiday season with Haiku. We are calling for submissions of Holiday Haiku to post on our website on December 22, 2009.

Poets may submit up to two untitled Haiku in the traditional 5/7/5 form. Submissions may be serious or fun.

Since this will be an informal day of poetry, acceptance and rejection letters will not be sent, but on December 22, the chosen assortment will be posted. All submissions must be sent electronically by December 11, 2009. Click here to access our online submission form.

We look forward to reviewing your submissions soon!


Four and Twenty

Declaration Editing & Design is accepting submissions for the February 2010 issue of Four and Twenty, our short form poetry journal. All submissions for the February issue must be received by JanuaryDecember 31, 2009.

The guidelines are simple. All poems must be four lines or fewer in length and contain no more than twenty words (hence, Four and Twenty). All submissions are judged on the ability to create a vivid picture, evoke an emotional response, and use creative wordplay. All poetic forms that fit the journal’s guidelines (such as haiku, senryu, sapphic, and tanaga) are welcome, but authors are not limited to these forms. There is no set theme for the journal. A new issue of the journal is released the third Tuesday of each month.
