The Heron’s Nest is a quarterly journal. A new edition is published during the first week of March, June, September, and December. Included are several pages of haiku and one page presenting three Editors’ Choice haiku. In each issue The Heron’s Nest Award is given to one haiku. The winning haiku is posted on the home page, receives special commentary, and a certificate is sent to the poet. The Heron’s Nest will also appear in a single paper edition in April of each year. For details please see the About page. For information regarding how to submit, please click here.
