notes on dew





will, as afar as I know, be the first electronic journal to publish submitted poems
and artwork, as and when they have been selected for posting by its editor.

This novel and organic approach to an online journal would enable and allow all  readers to have an intimate and involved relationship with each appearing edition
of dew-on-line. All readers will be able to chart the ongoing growth of
each edition by regular visits to still's website.

I believe that this organic approach  also provides the editor with a healthy challenge when it applies to accepting work that will complement and further enhance the
earlier posted acceptances. This method will inevitably engage the editor's
collating instincts and hone her storytelling skill into continuing
a tale waiting to unfold further.

Additional poems and artwork will be added to this first unique edition of dew-on-line without disturbing the flow of any previous sequence of poems. The final poem for
this first edition of dew-on-line will be posted when its editor believes
the journal to be complete.

I sincerely hope that you will be inspired by the contents of the first online edition
of dew-on-line and by its layout and design, and wish you happy reading for
many visits to come. With each visit, I am convinced that you will gain
new insights into poems you may have overlooked on a previous reading,
and also be able to enjoy your favourites all over again.


 Warmly yours,

a i    l i






e-zine submission guidelines


dew-on-line submission guidelines


Submissions are invited for dew-on-line, a new on-line journal for:


Haiku [to include Senryu]


Cherita and Gembun

Sijo and other related verse

Haiga and Concrete Poetry

and artwork


All submissions must be the author/artist’s original work. Previously published
work is acceptable but please state where and when material was first published.

Submissions must not be under consideration elsewhere,
have been entered for any competitions and/or
accepted by
another publication, electronic or otherwise.

Contributors retain prior rights and upon publication, rights revert to the contributors.
I would strongly recommend that would-be contributors
familiarise themselves with
still’s website at: before submitting any work.

There are no submissions deadlines and you may send in as many
submissions as you wish but do remember to include the correct return
postage/IRC and SAE.

For all submissions bar e-mail submissions, please send a SAE if you live in the
United Kingdom, and a self-addressed envelope with 2 x International Reply Coupons
if you reside abroad. Any manuscripts that are sent without the
appropriate postage
or IRC will not receive a response, and will not be
returned. You can also submit via e-mail to: but please mark your submissions ‘For e-zine’.


All Haiga and other artwork must only be submitted as e-mail submissions to: but please mark your submissions ‘For e-zine’, and will
not be considered if submitted by snail mail.

All selected material will be presented one to a page, as in still, to acknowledge
the hard work you have put into your submissions, and to
accord your chosen poems and artwork with the dignity and recognition they so richly deserve.

There will be an announcement on still’s website when the first online edition has
been posted for sharing and you will be notified of its name. The regularity of this
e-zine will largely depend on the quality of submissions received.


I look forward to reading your poems and to selecting your artwork for the very first on-line healing journal for Haiku, Tanka and related short verse.
