Can someone who doesn't write haiku nominate haiku poets?

I don't see why not! Simply send six published or contest placed haiku by six different poets!

What is the blog address?

The Haiku Reader blog:

How do I know my email and nominations have been received?

The auto response will be your receipt that your work has been received.

If you haven’t received an answer, check if the email address was put in correctly. 

Or did it go to Spam for some reason?

If you cannot find the auto response receipt email in Spam or Junk, resend, fingers crossed!


Questions will be answered indirectly by updating this FAQ section on a regular basis throughout the year.

The auto response reply with submissions will include the FAQ web link which will provide more information and answers for your questions.

Where required, the auto response message will also be updated.

How do I know about updates

The blog pages will be updated throughout the year, so it’s a good idea if you can keep checking at least occasionally.

Is it only published haiku that I can nominate?

You can nominate your own haiku that have never been published, even rejected many times. This is another opportunity to have the recognition your haiku or senryu deserves!
