Kikakuza Haibun Contest 2011 deadline approaches fast!
Very sorry for the conflicting information we seem to have had up on the Icebox until recently. The deadline for this, Japan’s first and still only haibun contest, is officially 31 January, but we had apparently put ’31 March’ on one of our earlier posts. Poets! … I ask you! (tut)
We have requested the contest office to be lenient with the deadline this year, so if you still have not sent something off, if it arrives in Japan by mid-February, we expect it will be included in the judges’ bundle! And, this year, entry is free. Full details on the Contest Guidelines page (accessed top right). Thank you to Claire in Paris for the alert.
