MASKS 4: Send Submissions

We are pleased to announce that submissions are once again being considered for MASKS, now for issue 4.

MASKS is a journal that publishes haiku written by poets under the guises of pseudonyms (haigō, in the Japanese haiku tradition)—personae, mirages, alter egos, hallucinations, and/or tricksters.

Like the transformation masks carved by the Kwakwaka’wakw people, where, for example, the raven mask is opened and a human face is revealed (surrounded by two serpents), MASKS is a journal within a journal (R’r).

Send as many poems as you like to:

Multiple masks may be used in a single submission, but all submissions must be accompanied by at least one.

For a look at what we’ve done so far, please see:

MASKS ONE    /    MASKS 2    /    MASKS III

We’ll be accepting submissions until August 1, 2012, and will respond to them as soon as possible.

Scott Metz & Chris Gordon, editors
