PUDDOCK Haiku Journal seeks to encourage excellence in haiku and related genres in the three indigenous languages of Scotland: English, Gaelic and Scots and is open to submissions from writers around the world.
You can write on any topic. Scottish themes are also encouraged though we want poetry that resonates everywhere. Whether you are Scottish or not we want Shiki not Shortbread. We are more than tartan and bagpipes though we love that too.
PUDDOCK will be a bi-annual print production and we anticipate costs for each issue to be £5 plus postage and packing. There is no payment to authors but there will be a prize of original artwork for the best poem in each issue. 'Red Head' will be the prize for issue 1.
