I hope you’re ready to poem, because it’s time for another WD Poetic Form Challenge. This time around, we’ll be tackling haibun poems. Click the previous link to view the details, but a haibun combines a prose poem with a haiku.
If this is your first WD Poetic Form Challenge, here are the guidelines:
- Write as many original haibun poems as you wish and share them in the comments below
- Please include your name as you would like it to appear in print (just in case you win)
- Deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on September 16, 2012
- Have fun!
As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, these challenges incorporate the three F’s: fun, free, and fame. These challenges are primarily for the fun of poeming, and they’re completely free. But the winning poet/poem is selected to be published in a future issue of Writer’s Digest magazine as an example of the poetic form–this time a haibun.
So roll up your sleeves, unlock your brain, and start poeming!
