ENTRY DETAILS THAT WE’D LIKE if you are sending haiku only entries:

Remember that we accept both previously published haiku as well as unpublished haiku.

Previously published haiku can be from any year.  We are keen to allow both new and older published haiku an opportunity to do well in the competition, as well as appear in the book which will be part of the Summer season project.

We also accept more than one submission of entries through the  duration of the competition. As you find your more recent haiku published in magazines, or placed in competitions, you can make an extra submission to the competition.

No attachments please, just haiku (and any notes) in the main body of your email to:

Along with your haiku entry please include in your email:
  1. Your Name
  2. Your place of residence: village or town or city plus county/region/state/Country.
  3. Publication credits of haiku if previously published.
