Egrets Reading

Green Tea

Just another reminder about the green tea haiku contest - if you're a haiku writer, this is your chance to win a case of green tea with your haiku printed on it (and also 200,000 yen which translated into dollars is still a LOT of money for a teensie weensie little 3 line poem).

It's free to enter with an online form, totally legitimate, in its 17th year. Margaret Chula told me at Haiku Pacific Rim that she won it one year, and I know that others in the English language haiku community known to me have won it but I just can't remember quite who right now.

The deadline is February 28th, so there's not much time left.
