Harvest Haiku Challenge Launched in Northern Michigan

Traverse City – Taste the Local Difference®, Michigan’s local food branding and marketing organization, has launched the Harvest Haiku Challenge in partnership with Blackbird Arts TC and Michigan Writers. The poetry contest opened for entries on October 1 with a deadline of November 15, 2016.

Haiku are a form of Japanese poetry. Each haiku is spare in design, expressing a single emotion or impression in seventeen syllables of unrhymed words on three lines with five, seven, and five syllables on each line, respectively. The short poems are often related to the natural world. The emphasis for this contest will be on celebrating the many facets of Northern Michigan’s harvest season.
