Echidna Tracks Issue 6: Shelter (Submissions Accepted during October 2020)

For Issue 6 of Echidna Tracks: Australian Haiku: Shelter we invite your previously unpublished haiku and senryu on the theme of ‘shelter’ in all its many forms: protection from danger or weather; refuge; sanctuary; shield; cover; defense; concealment – including the animate, non-animate, human and non-human.

We won’t want a hundred haiku and senryu using the word ‘shelter’ but will give preference to those poems that best give us a sense of shelter by inference and suggestion.

The submission period for Issue 6 will be open throughout October 2020. Please read the guidelines carefully. We look forward to your submissions.

Submissions have now closed.
