The first haiku I wrote was published on a small blog called "Haiku Abound", Though looking back on it now, I don't consider the poem I wrote a haiku, the experience helped encourage me to continue my study of the form.

Perhaps start with smaller presses or blogs just to get accustomed to the submissions process.
It will also help you learn to 'vet' your haiku.

Also, when submitting try to take the time to check out any free reading material they may have.
It will help you determine what the market is looking for.

I've yet to have success with modern haiku, but i'll keep trying! (but not to much)

One publishing house I've had consistent success with is Prolific Press (
Their a smaller market, but their magazines pay a little ($1.50).

Consider investing in a duotrope account?

Keep on writing!
