We’ve had lots of great feedback from many of you who count on The Haiku Foundation’s Event Calendars to remind you of upcoming haiku events, contests, and journal deadlines. We update the calendars at least once each month, and are grateful to those of you who provide information and corrections to keep the calendars accurate and timely. Some contest deadlines are fast approaching, including:
- March 8 – European Quarterly Kukai

- March 24 – ukiaHaiku Festival Annual Haiku Contest
- March 25 – Nicholas A. Virgilio Memorial Haiku Competition

Additionally, a new haiku competition has just been announced by The Heron’s Nest to honor Peggy Willis Lyles. The deadline is June 1 and more information about this contest can be found at the THF Forum Haiku Bulletin Board.
Information hyperlinks to these and many other matters of interest to haiku poets are included in the Event Calendars (one version of which is contests-only).
