The Sheaf and Porter Rivers Trust’s haiku competition
One of the other very pleasant things I’ll be doing this month is helping to judge the Platform 5 Poetry Competition, organised by the Sheaf and Porter Rivers Trust in Sheffield. My fellow judges will be Ian McMillan, poet, broadcaster and one of the funniest men I’ve ever met, and Debjani Chatterjee. Debjani is a poet and writer, and Fellow of the Royal Literature Society. So I’m in great company! I will be judging the entries from the younger age group.
I have written a blog post about writing haikus, which you may find interesting. It also includes lots of background information and some examples of Japanese haiku.
I will also publish the winning entry to the Haiku competition on the blog.
