Motueka Library: Haiku Poetry Competition for Everyone

Monday 24th September-Friday 19th October 2018

Spring is a great time to be thinking about our changing environment and recording your observations in a Haiku poem.

A traditonal Japanese haiku poem is a 3-line poem with 17 syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Haiku often focus on images from nature and emphasise an element of the human condition.

Celebrate nature with a haiku poem and enter our Haiku Poetry Competition.

Email your entry to with Haiku Competition in the subject line by 5.00pm on Friday 19 October.

Poems will be judged by Maggie Brown and the winner will be announced at a poetry evening from 6.30pm-7.30pm on Friday 26 October.

This competition is open to all ages - children, young adults and adults.

The winning entries will win a prize and all Haiku poems entered in the competition will be displayed at Motueka Library.
