Attention all Haiku Master Wannabes! Heights Arts' 2018 Haiku Death Match will take place April 21 at Ensemble theater. Application for the Death Match is now open. You can find more information as well as the application and all the rules and regs here:
Only 10 poets will compete - first come, first served - so get on it!
Winner gets a cheesy trophy and the title of Haiku Master, plus no-commission sale of their books/chapbooks in the Heights Arts Gallery for a year. And, of course, the adulation of the public. Will YOU be the next Haiku Master?
Tickets for the 6th Annual Haiku Death Match will go on sale to the public in March, 2018.
