Poam, the newsletter of the Melbourne Poets’ Union, includes a haiku page in each bi-monthly issue. Poets receive payment of $3 per haiku and there is a book prize for one haiku, chosen by the newsletter editor each time.
You need to be a member of the Melbourne Poets Union to submit haiku – but it’s worth joining anyway, especially for Victorian poets.

Peter is the managing editor of Blue Giraffe poetry magazine. He also is poetry editor for the ezine, The Tasmanian Times.
