As the days grow longer, many people start thinking about spring and renewal. Haiku Newton will celebrate this season of growth and transformation in the form of Haiku poems chosen from our 2024 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 submission period for this year's contest has closed. Check back soon for updates.
