Thanks to all who have nominated haiku for the 2021 Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems. For those who haven’t, time is running out — we’re down to our last two weeks. Please send us two of your favorite English-language haiku published during 2021, one of which may be your own. Nominated haiku must have been published for the first time in 2021, and may have appeared in a book, print or online journal, or the results of a haiku contest. The Touchstones are awards, not contests, so only work published in these ways is eligible. In addition to your nominations, we will, as in previous years, solicit additional nominations from journal and book editors from work they have done during the award year. Please use our online form.
Current and past award recipients are showcased in the Touchstone Archive. Check it out to see what previous Touchstone Award-winning poems have looked like. And you can find more information on eligibility and how to submit nominations in the Touchstone Poems Awards information page.
We look forward to your nominations!
