Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to announce the start of our third Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Kukai 2015. This time I have chosen to challenge you to write haiku in which you have to use juxtaposition, one of our Haiku Writing Techniques. I will explain it in short hereafter.
|Credits: Juxtaposition (in art)|
What is a kukai? Well it's a haiku writing contest in which the participants are the judges too. You can submit a maximum of three (new and never earlier published) haiku to our email address:
You can submit a maximum of three haiku (no tanka) before August 16th 2015. After the closing date I will compile an anonymous list of the submitted haiku and will publish it here at our Haiku Kai (in the menu above). After publishing that anonymous list the judging period of two weeks starts. You can only judge haiku if you have submitted haiku for the kukai.
As judge you can give 6 points (3 points for the best haiku, 2 points for the second best haiku and 1 point for the third best haiku). As all the votes are given I will gather the points and will announce the winner and the runner-up.
The winner gets the opportunity to compile his/her E-book (a maximum of 40 pages) which I will create for him/her and he/she will be our featured haiku poet for September. The runner-up will be honored in a Tokubetsudesu episode.
Our third CDHK kukai "juxtaposition" is NOW OPEN for your submissions.
PS. The judging for our second kukai "summertime" is done and I hope to announce the winner and the runner-up later today.
