Hai Noon For Haiku Poets!


The Cleveland Haiku Death Match is back!

Now called "High Noon Haiku" (since, despite the name, no poets were harmed during the previous deathmatch), the haiku contest is Friday, August 5, at Dobama Theatre at the Heights Library, 2340 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights.

Too scared to go head to head in a high-noon shootout? Well, open Mic is at 7PM and participants can bring three haiku to read to the audience.

The event is cosponsored by Heights Arts and Dobama.

According to the event page at Heights Arts:
