…and speaking of haiku
February 2, 2016
Now that National Haiku Writing Month is officially underway, Whatcom County, Washington, poets might consider submitting a cherry-blossom-themed haiku to The Ferndale Cherry Blossom Festival. Each poet may submit two unpublished haiku poems. There are Youth and Adult categories and the winning haiku will be selected by Michael Dylan Welch. The submission deadline is Monday, March 14, 2016. For guidelines, see Call To All Whatcom County Poets and find the submission form on The Ferndale Cherry Blossom Festival page.
For inspiration, see “Some Suggestions for Writing Haiku” on the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational page.
