Golden Triangle’s 2018 Golden Haiku contest
Submissions for the Golden Triangle’s 2018 Golden Haiku contest will be accepted through Feb. 2, 2018, and the Haiku entries will be judged once again by an esteemed panel of haiku experts. The recommended theme will be “Spring in the City,” but other haiku submissions will be accepted. Each participant may enter only one time, submitting a maximum of three haiku on the Golden Triangle’s online submission form. Award-winning haiku entries, along with dozens of other judge favorites, will be featured throughout March on colorful signs that are displayed on planter boxes along city sidewalks, in front of major office buildings within the business improvement district. In addition to first, second and third place awards presented from all submissions, the contest will also award a regional favorite. Haiku entries will be limited to three per person. This year’s entries will be judged by the following distinguished poets: Abigail Friedman, John Stevenson, and Kit Pancoast Nagamura.
