The Cold Moon Journal nominations for the 2022 Touchstone Awards have been submitted to The Haiku Foundation (for poems published January to June 2022).
Congratulations to these 16 talented poets:
Barrie Levine (X2)
Douglas J. Lanzo
H. A. Sappho
Joseph P. Wechselberger
Joshua St. Claire
Nominations for July to December 2022 will be announced shortly before the end of the year.
Good luck to everybody!
You are invited to submit a single email containing up to five of your poems (in the spirit of haiku/senryu/tanka) per calendar month. No themes at the moment.
Poems received in a given month will be considered for publication in Cold Moon Journal the following month. (In other words, if you send your poems in March, they will be competing for April space.) Is your writing style traditional? Fine. Gendai or experimental? Also welcome, although we can’t accommodate much in the way of special formatting.
Poems must be your original work and should be in English. Previously unpublished work is preferred, but poems appearing on social media are acceptable.
No e-mail attachments will be opened. Please send to: coldmoonjournal(at)gmail(dot)com.
We are not soliciting prose or artwork at this time.
There is no money in this, but all rights revert back to the poet upon publication.
We strive to respond quickly (within two weeks, usually much faster). Both acceptance and rejection notices are sent. New haiku/senryu/tanka are added to Cold Moon Journal several times a week. You can view the most popular poems (scroll down to bottom right of the journal for the list).
You will never see anything here that suggests racism, violence or prejudice.
This journal nominates for various annual haiku and poetry awards.
