The submission window for the first issue of Frozen Butterfly is now open and will remain open until the 1st of September. All styles of English-Language haiku will be considered for publication. I am looking to showcase a number of different approaches to English-Language haiku composition. This will play an integral part in the selection process, so make sure that you take that into account when choosing what to submit to Frozen Butterfly.
Submission: Send up to three unpublished haiku in the body of an email along with your name and place of residence as you wish them to appear in the journal to firstname.lastname@example.org
Payments: Unfortunately there is no payment at this time for contributors. The ability to pay contributors will be regularly assessed.
Rights: Upon publication, rights revert to the author except that Frozen Butterfly reserves the right to republish work that has appeared in the journal, with proper citation, in any future print or electronic collections, compendiums, or anthologies. If any author wishes to republish their work, Frozen Butterfly requests the courtesy of being acknowledged as the first place of publication with proper citation.
Schedule: Frozen Butterfly is a biannual publication. It will be published on the 1st of October and the 1st of April. Submissions can be sent from the 1st of August until the 1st of September, and from the 1st of February until the 1st of March. Any submissions sent outside of these windows will be returned unread.
Author obligations: If you have work accepted for Frozen Butterfly you will be required to provide a photo of yourself and two voice recordings in a WAV or MP3 format. The first voice recording should be a single reading of your poem performed by yourself; the second should be a simple statement of your name and place of residence. These photos and recordings will appear alongside your haiku in the journal.
Editorial declaration: If you choose to send your work to Frozen Butterfly, it is assumed that you have read and understood all of the above, and that you are able and willing to fulfil your obligations as a contributor.
