The aim of PUDDOCK Haiku Journal is to encourage excellence in haiku and related genres in the three indigenous languages of Scotland: English, Gaelic and Scots.
For the first issue of PUDDOCK you are encouraged to write about Scottish themes though this is not exclusive. We hope to have a Scottish flavour for all our issues but want haiku that resonate everywhere else too. Whether you are Scottish or not we want Shiki not Shortbread. We are more than just tartan and bagpipes; though we love that too.
There is no payment to authors but there will be a prize of original artwork for the best poem in each issue of PUDDOCK. Red Head will be the prize for issue 1.
PUDDOCK will be produced in print and we anticipate costs for each issue of PUDDOCK to be GBP £4 plus postage and packing.
We accept all haikai forms.
