Names, hometowns and state/country listed on first four pages

Send poetry by postal mail with enclosed SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope). SASE used to mail contributor a copy of the issue his/her poem is in. . . if no poetry has been accepted, all are mailed back to poet in the SASE - if one or more poems are accepted, remaining poems are shredded (with dignity). For a sample copy, send an SASE.

30 fine poets (+/-) in each issue. Poems are presented just as received (appreciate how poet's physically present poetry, including font/handwriting/even some misspellings, and, artwork)

A number of bear creek haiku's longtime poets don't use email, but, encourage poets from countries other than the USA to submit by email. Stateside preference is postal submissions, but, if you must submit by email, um, ok.

7-8 issues a yearâ if an accepted poem fits on a page, it can have almost any form (of course includes beloved haiku/senryu/tanka) - usually, 13 or so lines max.

Poetry for consideration is mailed with an SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope). SASE is used to mail poet's copy - if no poetry is accepted, all are mailed back to the poet in the SASE, if one or more poems are accepted, the remaining poems are shredded (with great dignity).
