Editorial Focus

Acorn is a biannual journal dedicated to publishing the best of contemporary English-language haiku. In particular, it showcases the individual poem and the ability of haiku to reveal the extraordinary moments found in everyday life.

Tips From the Editor

Do not want epigrams, musings, overt emotion poured into 17 syllables, science fiction, political commentary, strong puns or raunchy humor. A 5-7-5 syllable count is not necessary or encouraged. Preferred length is 1-5 lines, 17 or fewer syllables.
