Lanesboro Arts Center announces a call for Haiku Poetry


Thu, May 29th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. - Lanesboro Arts Center announces a Call for Haiku Poetry written by people of all ages and all levels of experience. A selection of poems will be chosen for inclusion in the Lanesboro Arts Campus project, with the potential to be published in a number of different ways including public signage throughout Lanesboro, Lanesboro Arts Center web and social media, printed publications, and Lanesboro Arts Campus events.

Haiku is a short poetry form that was developed in Japan. It is written in a 3-line format, with the first line being five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line five syllables (no rhyming or complete sentences necessary!). LAC invites Haiku submissions of all subject matter, but specifically is looking for entries that speak to the unique culture of our region--for example, themes of nature, art, community, agriculture, family, small towns, local food, specific local landmarks or events, etc.

Lanesboro Arts Center is accepting Haiku submissions now through 5 p.m. on June 25, 2014. Each applicant may submit 1-3 Haiku poems. To read the full guidelines and submit your poetry, follow the link on the homepage of our website www.lanesboroarts.org. Online submission through LAC’s website is strongly encouraged, but hard-copy submissions will also be accepted. Postmark deadline is June 25, 2014. Send 1-3 Haiku poems and include contact information (full name, address, email, phone number) to: Lanesboro Arts Center, attn: POETRY, PO Box 152, Lanesboro, MN 55949. Following the jury process, poems selected for publication will be announced on LAC’s website and/or Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LanesboroArts) on August 1, 2014.

With the creation of the Lanesboro Arts Campus (a project of Lanesboro Arts Center, in partnership with the City of Lanesboro and the Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce), the municipal parking lot in Lanesboro will be transformed into the Poetry Parking Lot, an artful, functional space where “park here” signage is replaced with Haiku poetry. Award-winning poet, teacher and writer Ed Bok Lee is serving as public art and poetry consultant, and will be working with a local jury committee and Lanesboro Arts Center staff to review Haiku poetry submissions for inclusion and publication in the Lanesboro Arts Campus.

LAC plans to hold this contest annually, replacing the poetry e .....
