When you enter the competition don't forget you do get a  FREE opportunity  to submit your own notes about why your haiku is about the Summer season, or just a series of field notes about what Summer is to you personally, or any other way you'd like to talk about Summer.

The With Words Haiku Book of Summer will contain the voices of writers talking about Summer not only through their haiku, but their own observations and comments, rather than just the voice of an editor alone.
