Haiku Contest Returns to
Greater Kansas City Japan Festival
This year the Greater Kansas City Japan Festival will extend its haiku contest, bringing this ancient 16th century Japanese literary form to our own backyard. The brevity of a three-line poem suits our fast-paced lives, and gives the opportunity to celebrate Kansas City.
Guidelines: Haiku are 17 syllables, written in 3 lines of 5-7-5 syllables, and must connect to one of the following Kansas City related topics:
There will be two contests: one for children (16 and under) and one for adults (17 and older). Please indicate which topic your poem relates to, and include a one-sentence bio. Feel free to submit 1-5 poems.
For more information and to turn in your haiku, go to the GKC Japan Festival website!
