Furry Haiku

Deadline: June 15th, 2019

Editor: Thurston Howl

Word count: Three lines!

It’s time for another Weasel Press poetry collection! This one is centered on furry haiku. If you don’t know what a haiku is, I would suggest researching it. There are a few specific criteria for you though:

Can only be one stanza

Has to be explicitly anthropomorphic

Haiku can be erotic, but there’s no requirement for it either. Treat this as an “adult-inclusive” anthology.

The anthology will feature Japanese translations of everyone’s poems as well as sumi-e art throughout. If you’d like to contribute to the art, just email me at thurstonhowl@weaselpress.com. 

We will NOT accept:

  • Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
  • Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18 presented in a positive light.
  • Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction presented in a positive light.
  • Snuff or Necrophilia presented in a positive light
  • Bestiality presented in a positive light
  • If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask then to get a straight up rejection! If you are unsure, just shoot me an email at thurstonhowl@weaselpress.com. (restrictions borrowed from Voice: https://t.co/MWykJ6RY36)

You can submit up to three haiku, but we will only accept one per author (if any). ONLY USE ONE SUBMISSION FORM. The form will take up to 3 documents. 

Reprints are fine, but you have to own full permission of the work in order for us to consider it.

We will not accept simultaneous submissions.

Payment: Authors will receive $5 USD per poem.

Send submissions in .doc or .docx format through Submittable.

We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.

Book will likely be released November.
