The editors of Serow: Journal of the Akita International Haiku Network are asking for HAIGA submissions to be included in our next edition, Serow Vol. 3 due out in early summer 2020.

  • HAIGA may be attributed to multiple people (for example poet, artist, and/or calligrapher). Please include FULL NAMES, hometowns, and email contact info for each person involved.
  • The image must not be borrowed/copyrighted material!
  • The haiku must be the poet’s own creation!

Please include:

  • Photo of the artist/poet (JPEG, PNG, or other acceptable format. The higher resolution the better.)
  • About 400 words introducing yourself and your experience with the art form.
  • 3 to 5 images (photos, drawings, paintings) and accompanying haiku.  Photos should be as high resolution as possible.  Scanned images should also be as high resolution as possible (600 dpi or more) and sent as JPEG or PNG.
  • The haiku text may be included in the image OR sent separately.


We regret that we will not be able to include all of the submissions.

  1. Thanks for invitation.
    I would like to participate.
    Thanks Mr Tohokubento.

  2. Dear the host organization

    I’m hesitating as to whether I participtate or not.
    Could you tell me if the works having been made public before are accepted?


  3. Thank you for your comment.

    “Made public” is unclear to me. If they appeared on your SNS (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, 等), then that is OK! No problem!!

    If your works appeared on another haiku or poetry website or journal, then please do not submit them.

  4. Dear Mr. Hiroyuki Tsuda. I tried several times to send my Haiga but as a result I received an error message so I couldn’t submit my Haiga yet. I have been trying hard but with no luck. Do I still have the opportunity to submit m6 Haiga. If so, where to.
    My best regards.

  5. Hello. It’s Ben from Akita International Haiku Network.

    Thank you for your interest! Unfortunately we are not accepting any more work at this time. We hope that you will participate again in the future.
