Haiku Invitational

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

The theme for the 2018 VCBF Haiku Invitational is harmony. How do you harmonize with the natural world and with others around you? Let the idea of harmony be your inspiration as you write about cherry blossoms for this year's Haiku Invitational Contest!

The top poems in six main categories (Vancouver, BC, Canada, United States, International and Youth) will receive celebrity readings and be featured in creative ways during the 2018 festival some which include: publication in The Bulletin magazine, Haiku Canada newsletter, an online publication in the newsletter of the Haiku Society of America, printing in a chapbook hand-folded and bound by Victoria-based Leaf Press and publication on the VCBF website. Winning poems will be read by Christopher Gaze at the VSO's Tea & Trumpets Concert, at our media-kickoff event, Cherry Jam Downtown concert by media celebrity emcee and celebrated at Sakura Days Japan Fair Leith Wheeler Haiku House.
