Genjuan International Haibun Contest 2018 – deadline approaches!

Posted in Challenge!, Haibun with tags , on January 21, 2018 by Tito

Ten more days till the deadline for entries into this year’s Genjuan International Haibun Contest. Details here. The office is usually lenient with entries arriving a few days late. The four judges will read your works without knowing authors’ identities. They will be looking for haikai style, best understood by reading examples. Check out our haibun pages through the page links at top right. Click the hailstones ‘Icebox’ header photo to return to this top page anytime. Good luck!

Stopping outside
A house of quiet embroidery …
Dog’s muzzle
To my hand.

(Banpho, Vietnam, 30.12.17)

We wish our readers a Happy New Year of the Dog. For you all, may its muzzle softly lick!
