The poems you post will also be considered for the haikuKATHA Monthly Journal from December 2021 onwards! Due to to the sudden increase in the activity, here are some quick guidelines, for all the three groups:

1. TWO poems per day.

2. For each poem you share, please comment on ONE other poem which isn't yours!

3. Post only your unpublished poems.


Poems previously published on your personal webpage or social media will be accepted.

Poems previously published in peer-reviewed or edited journals or anthologies as well as contest winners that were published elsewhere as such, will not be accepted.


4. IMPORTANT: if any member provides feedback on the poem in the comment section, it is the poet's duty to decide on the final version and post it on top of the original version.


Or else the original unedited version on your thread will be picked up by us.


On your comment thread you need to post your revised final version (if you have one!)


Edited version: Your final version of the poem goes first, so it will be easy for our team to consider that for the haikuKATHA journal.

Original version: Your first version of the poem remains - under your final version. The way it is shown here.
