Editorial Focus

Eastern Structures picks up where Contemporary Ghazals left off, publishing English-language examples of the Middle Eastern form, but now also Korean sijo and Japanese tanka—the latter rendered exclusively in the 5-7-5-7-7 syllabic structure. (Please note that as of early 2023, they are no longer accepting haiku, senryu, or related articles.)

Tips From the Editor

We would advise that potential contributors make themselves familiar with the style and protocols of Eastern Structures before submitting. The best way to familiarize oneself with the magazine, of course, is by purchasing and reading an issue. Issues one through twenty-four and The Complete Eastern Structures omnibuses are readily available on Amazon.
