Call for submissions: Third Australian Haiku Anthology

It’s now five years since the publication of the Second Australian Haiku Anthology (2006), so another edition of work by Australian haiku poets, now so well represented in contests and publications around the world, is timely.

Submissions for the third edition are invited from poets living in Australia or from Australian poets, resident overseas.

The deadline for submissions is: 30 September 2011

The editors are looking for submissions of up to 5 previously published haiku, typed in 12pt font, clearly marked with your name, postal and email address. Details of where the haiku were published must be included along with details of any awards the haiku may have won. A brief biography is also required.

Submissions can be emailed to Katherine Samuelowicz at or posted to:

In the spirit of haiku, here’s another handful of San Francisco poems to leave you with…

black coffee
with each sip
the stars brighten


rubbing your belly
the beat
of two hearts


first drink
on the horizon
three fingers of sun
