Chiff & Fipple Presents:

Submitting your tinwhistle haiku:
1. We encourage all tinwhistle haiku & authors to submit their work here.
2. Submit as many haiku as you want, together or separately, by e-mailing them to James Isaacs, Tinwhistle Haiku Managing Editor-In-Chief. (James then edits and compiles and forwards these to Dale Wisely, Tinwhistle Haiku Associate Editor Emeritus for inclusion on this website).
3. My intent is to post virtually all haiku I receive on this website. Here are the rules:
a. 3 lines, with 5, 7, and 5 syllables, respectively. This is NOT a rule that needs to be observed when writing real haiku. But, tinwhistle haiku is typically not real haiku and the 5/7/5 rule gives you a little structural challenge to work within. It's good for your character.
b. content somehow related to tinwhistles
c. I no longer allow titles on haiku.
d. unless you specify otherwise, I'll post your name and/or e-mail address under each haiku you submit and I post.
e. I reserve the right, obviously, to not publish any haiku I don't want to publish. The most common reasons: Just too bad, incomprehensible, too personalized.
4. If you have submitted haiku and haven't seen it posted after a week or so, do feel free to e-mail me about it. Oversights occur.
5. That's it.
