I'm sure many of you have never heard of bear creek haiku. I never had up until a few months ago, when I found it online and submitted a few poems. Editor Ayaz Daryl Nielson chose one of my poems for the current issue, #78, and I received my contributor's copy this week.
It's a small magazine (which is fitting since it mostly publishes haiku), but it contains some very strong poems. Some well-known contributors include Alan Catlin, Peggy Dugan French, and Dorothy McLaughlin.
Also, the new issue of Yellow Mama (#8) just went live. Check it out. It's got dark stories and poems by Kenneth James Crist, John Grey, and Lyn Lifshin.
