Concise Delight Magazine of Short Poetry is a biannual print journal dedicated to publishing the very best of very short verse, from one to nine lines in length (not including title). Every short form, from one-line epigrammatic poems to three-tercet poems, and free verse up to nine lines in length, are welcome. Poems will not be judged by any of the widely varying haiku standards, nor as senryu, nor as zappai. Poems will be evaluated for their intrinsic poetic merit. Poems published in Concise Delight will not be labeled nor categorized. This is not a magazine about form; it is a magazine dedicated to top quality very short verse. Submissions are open for the summer 2009 issue.
