Genjuan International Haibun Contest 2019 – deadline approaches!

Three more weeks 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 three judges include newly-appointed Toru Kiuchi, Vice Director of the International Division at the Museum of Haiku Literature. They will read your works without knowing authors’ identities and 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!

  1. Please note that you can send in a haibun submission as short as 7 lines. This would include title (1 line) and haiku (say, 3 lines). Thus, prose can be minimal, but should be tellingly contrasted with the poem and title! If English is your second language, or if you don’t have much time, perhaps reading this you will now consider entering a piece or two?
