Submission Guidelines

High Coupe invites original and previously unpublished haiku to its pages. . .

Authors must be over 18 to submit.

Send 3-5 haiku in the body of an email to:

Subject of email: "[author's name] Poetry Submission for High Coupe"

Please include a third-person author bio with your submission.

We welcome both traditional 5-7-5 haiku as well as modern haiku that is not as concerned with the 5-7-5 syllable count.
Acceptance grants High Coupe one time electronic publishing rights. Upon publication, all rights revert immediately to the author. If a poem published in High Coupe is later published elsewhere, we respectfully ask that you credit us as the original market.
Publication is on a rolling basis.
Published work will be retained in the archives of High Coupe on a non-exclusive basis for as long as the editor sees fit.  High Coupe retains the right to potentially select certain works published on their page for inclusion in annual, "best of" print anthology, Storm Cycle -- All authors being notified in advance of such selection for additional publication.
Absolutely NO simultaneous submissions. The editor will do her best to review work and respond in as timely a manner as humanly possible. Simultaneous submissions just add unnecessary complications that interfere with that process.
Absolutely NO attachments. Any submission received that has an attachment will be deleted. (Please do not make me banish potentially excellent work for such a pointless mistake in following directions.)
High Coupe is a nonpaying publication.
Thank you for your patronage.
