It's almost 2013, and to start the year off with some good publishing opportunities, here are a couple of upcoming haiku deadlines:
- Mu, An International Haiku Journal, is open to submissions for its fifth issue until January 31st, 2013. There is no payment for accepted poems, other than the joy of publication. No simultaneous submissions or previously published poems.
- tinywords is open to submissions of short poems for its next issue (unthemed). Previously published poems will be considered, but simultaneous submissions won't. The submission deadline is January 20th, 2013. There is no payment for accepted poems.
- The North Carolina Poetry Society is sponsoring a bunch of poetry contests, including the Griffin-Farlow Haiku Award. There are three prizes -- $25, $15, and $10 -- and everyone can submit one entry. There is a $3 entry fee per poem if you're not an NCPS member. The deadline for submissions is January 12th, 2013. (Thanks to Haiku Reality for posting this contest notice.)
