<poet Charlie Mehrhoff

bear creek haiku: four sheets legal-sized blue paper cut in thirds lengthwise, stacked, then folded, two blue staples at fold, thus, 48 pages of poetry (and art)

Names, hometowns, state/country, page(s) your poetry is on listed in first four pages  

Send poetry by postal mail with enclosed SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope), SASE used to mail contributor's copy... if no poetry has been accepted, all are mailed back to you in the SASE- if one (or more) poems are accepted, remaining poems shredded (but, with dignity).  A sample copy: send an SASE.

30+ fine poets each issue.  Poems are presented just as received (appreciate how poet's physically present their poetry, including font/handwriting/even some misspellings, and, artwork)

Poets outside the United States can submit by email (always include postal mail address).  Stateside preference is postal submissions, but, if you submit by email, um, ok.

7-8 issues a year. . .  an accepted poem can have almost any form (of course includes beloved haiku/senryu/tanka) - usually, 13 or so lines max.

                      Too many poets.
                                       Too many words.

                                        Issa alone.
