The Haiku Hecameron

An invitation from Scott Mason

The Haiku Hecameron


The Haiku Hecameron will be a volume featuring the haiku-related work of 100 haiku poets worldwide with each piece created in the spirit of gratitude for something that remains right (possibly even wondrous) in the world of the poet’s present-day experience.
A submission consists of up to a total of three of the following, in any combination:
–          haiku
–          haiku sequence (up to 100 words including title)
–          – haibun (up to 100 words including title)
–          haiga (minimum resolution 300 dpi)
One submission, as defined above, per person. Work must be the author’s own and not previously published (in print or online) or under consideration anywhere else (e.g., for publication or a contest).


Anyone whose work has appeared in an edited haiku journal (print or online) in the last three years can make a submission.

Where and How
With “The Haiku Hecameron” as the subject line, and addressed to Scott Mason, all submissions should be sent to
Haiga should be provided in jpg format as an attachment. All other work (individual haiku, haiku sequence[s] and/or haibun) should be provided in the body of the submission email.
Within the body or your submission provide your name, your name (if different) as you’d like it to appear in The Haiku Hecameron if any of your work is selected for inclusion, and your location (town or city; state, province or region; country)
The deadline for submissions is end-of-day (EST) on International Haiku Poetry Day: April 17, 2020
Submitting poets will be notified as to whether any of their work has been accepted for The Haiku Hecameron by May 17, 2020.
The goal is to have The Haiku Hecameron available for purchase in late July 2020, approximately one hundred days after International Haiku Poetry Day.  Contributors and submitting poets will qualify for discounts.
