Opportunity

Haiku: The one breath poetry evening event (with bar) at the Bristol Museum and City Gallery offers an opportunity for those both overseas, and anyone unable to make the physical event.

An opportunity for poets...
There is also an opportunity to submit haiku, senryu or tanka poetry online, based on (or matched to) Bristol Museum & Art Gallery's prints, from wherever in the world you are logging on. We are looking for poems to use as examples during the event, and some may also be selected for possible publication on the museum's website.

Details about the opportunity:

Look forward to entries!  :)

Lots of great haiku from all over the world but we could do with more tanka too!  ;)

The poem portal will be open at least until Sunday September 1st.
ALL poems will be printed out by the museum for the September 5th evening event!

We had a full house! People of all ages (some I encouraged to submit to Lori A Minor's publications as they were now in the 'modern dating scene').

We even had someone from Mainland China! :-) Now that was awesome, talk about distance!

Karen Garvey, the Bristol Museum(s) Events Officer put photos up in real time last night, so catch them at:

I cannot get over how much hard work went into this event by Kate Newnam, Senior Curator, and Karen Garvey, and the museum crew.

We even had one person from the British Haiku Society attend, which was lovely!
