Our sister site, Black Heart Magazine, is currently running a Haiku Contest!
If you’re a fan of these short poems, whether traditionally focused on the natural world or more postmodernly taking on the city and the people who live in it, you’ll definitely want to check this out. Black Heart is offering a $100 cash prize to the winner, plus publication, and it’s just $5 to enter. You can submit as many poems as you like, and the best submission will be chosen by magazine staff.
As an extra special bonus, Buttontapper Press will also create an illustrated ebook of the best entries, to be published as part of our “Haiku for ___” series. The first in the series is titled Haiku for Haters, and is available for purchase here.
Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2012.
