HaikuNow! Contest for 2011

We are pleased to announce the start of our second annual HaikuNow! contest today! Prizes will be awarded for English-language haiku in three categories: traditional, contemporary and innovative. Anyone is free to enter one unpublished haiku per category.

Please see the main HaikuNow! page for deadlines and other requirements. The winning poems from last year are available from the HaikuNow! Archive page.

Laura Sherman is our contest coordinator. Our two final judges are Jim Kacian and Jane Hirshfield. Many of you will know Jane from her poetry collections (After), her essays (Nine Gates, Entering the Mind of Poetry) and her translations (Ink Dark Moon, with Mariko Aratani).

We look forward to receiving your entries!
