haikuworld is pleased to share the following information regarding
Modern Haiku: An Independent Journal of Haiku and Haiku Studies
Modern Haiku was founded by Kay Titus Mormino, who edited the magazine from 1969 until 1977.
From that time until 2002, it was edited and published by Robert Spiess, a friend
and mentor to many of the most published haiku authors of our time. As his health failed him,
Bob turned the editorship over to Lee Gurga (See "letter from Bob").
Formerly the Assistant Editor, Lee has taken on his own Assistant Editor, Charles Trumbull, the proprietor of Deep North Press, who
will handle much of the production of the magazine.
Modern Haiku continues to be the longest continuous English-language haiku magazine,
appearing three times a year with approximately 84 to 96 pages. Paying $1 per published haiku, Modern Haiku also invites
articles and book reviews from their readership. Please refer to the current Submissions Guidelines
for more details.
