Here’s a great look at haiku writing from the perspective of Shelly Bryant, successful poet who revitalizes the meaning of what a haiku poem really is. “The Moment” and “The Turn” are especially important.
Dear Readers, Writers, and Fish Entrepreneurs,
The deadline for our Fall issue is approaching! Just in case Internet Trawlers don’t know who we are, or what we aim to do, here’s a little spam to fry in the pan:
Yorick Magazine is now accepting submissions for its Fall 2012 issue. The deadline is August 1st.
We’re a magazine for new writers, emerging artists, innocent dreamers. We’re interested in something fresh, with design and art at hand, but with sincere intentions at the forefront.
We accept short stories and novel excerpts of 3500 words or less, and we accept poems of a comparable length. We are also interested in artwork and photography (please submit pictures with high resolution).
We don’t care about genres. Just write. If your piece happens to take place in space, then make it so.
All submissions go to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re pretty quick with our response time, but if you haven’t heard back from us or if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send another email.
Yes, we have the full social media gamut covered.
And in case denizens of the future question how we started, I’ll lightly mention that our magazine came into fruition from drunken ramblings on a dirty bathroom floor at 3:32am, November 11th, 2011. That’s how the best ideas begin.
