Does a haiku shared in the forum considered published?
« on: February 07, 2019, 10:49:12 PM »
Respected haijins,
I would appreciate your views on whether a haiku shared in this forum considered as published by journals like The Heron's Nest and Frogpond?

No, poems posted in private workshops are classed as unpublished as they are not viewable from a simple google search which means that they are not in the public domain from a publishing point of view. You’re safe to send any of your work that you’ve shared on this or any other forum to THN or Frogpond.

Hi XYZ,

While THN and Frogpond do accept poems workshopped in a forum like the one on this website, there are other journals that categorically do not consider poems posted on personal blogs, forums etc. Eucalypt, the tanka journal and cattails (haiku, senryu, tanka, haiga and haibun) are two such examples. Skylark, another leading tanka journal states that once accepted the poem/poems "must not be shared online prior to the issue going to print. f you do so, your tanka will be withdrawn from the print issue."

It is always worth reading the specific submission requirements of the journals you want to submit to and if in doubt, ask the editor.
