Lilliput Review ... where smaller is better

                   Dedicated to the memory of Albert Huffstickler

Gary Hotham's chapbook, Missed Appointment, has received an Honorable Mention from the Haiku Society of America for their 2008 Mildred Kanterman Memorial Merit Book Awards.  Congratulations, Gary.


Lilliput Review is a print magazine founded in 1989 and dedicated to the short poem. The magazine's normal format, 4.25 x 3.5", reflects its name and that focus. It is published irregularly, two issues at a time, with every 4th issue or so being a broadside featuring the work of a single poet. 

Guidelines: All poems submitted should be 10 lines or less, with a 3 poem maximum per submission.  All manuscripts must be accompanied by a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope) or IRCs (international reply coupons) with sufficient postage for their return or they will be placed in the trash. All poems should be previously unpublished, unless noted. Payment for work accepted is 2 copies of the issue in which the work appears. Reporting time is 180 days. No electronic submissions considered.

Subscriptions and sample copies of back issues of Lilliput are available according to the price schedule listed below. All issues from #2 through the current issues (#'s 169 & 170) are in print. Special pricing for the entire run is available upon request.  Sample poems from scores of issues of Lillie are available in the Back Issue Archive page.
