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 Anyone is free to enter one unpublished haiku per category.
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!
