ORGANIZER: Michael Smeer
Dear My Haiku Pond & haiku friends,
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Haiku for Change Event (2017) in conjunction with 100 Thousand Poets for Change (Global) 2017.
PROMPT: Write a NEW haiku (or senryu) regarding the issue of (over)population, climate change, or the ecology. Focus on change, without using the the word change! Make the world a better place by writing some food for thought…
HOW TO JOIN: Post your finished poem on the ‘2nd Annual Haiku for Change Event (2017)’ page.
RESULTS: All entries will be included in an Anthology of Haiku for Change, which will be posted on the 100 Thousand Poets for Change website, and archived by Stanford University as part of their program to document the 100 Thousand Poets for Change movement and community.
We hope you will enjoy this event and attendance will be even greater than last year’s event.
Joining is free! Please contact us, if you want to support us in any way.
NOTE: Additional info for this event will be posted if necessary.
We’d love to see your submission in September.
Michael Smeer & the MHP team
Ps. We are currently researching options to publish a ‘Haiku for Change 2017 Anthology’ e-chapbook which will incude our MHP editor’s selection of this event’s submissions. The copyright of the poems remains with the original authors. Suggestions are welcome! Check back later for more…
