As the days grow longer, many people start thinking about spring and renewal. Haiku Newton invites you to put those thoughts on paper, in the form of Haiku poems, and submit them to our third annual contest. Up to 24 poems will be selected and affixed to 18"x 24" customized high-end yard signs featuring spring-themed background images. The signs will be displayed in outdoor installations at the Newton Free Library and throughout Newton to celebrate April, National Poetry Month, and will continue through May or early June.
Haiku Newton is generously sponsored by Newton Community Pride.
The themes for this year’s contest are Regeneration, Renewal, and Revisioning. Click here or on the image above for more details and to submit your work.
