The September / October 2009 Autumn Kukai theme is "harvest moon" . Use the exact words "harvest moon" in the haiku. No more than a total of three haiku may be submitted. Haiku submitted to the kukai should not be workshopped, appear on-line in forums, or in print.
Subject: "harvest moon" kukai
Submissions: Tuesday, September 01, 2009 – Tuesday, October 20, 2009 Midnight.
Voting: Wednesday, October 21 - Wednesday, October 28, 2009, Midnight.
The results will be published in the Saturday, October 31, 2009 Sketchbook.
Letters to the Sketchbook editors and discussions on various forums indicate that some assumptions about a kukai must be spelled out. From now on (April 1, 2008), Haiku entered in the Sketchbook kukai must be previously unpublished; they must not be workshopped; they must not appear on any list, forum, group, blog, or in print. In short, if the haiku has appeared on the internet or in print we consider it to have been published. The voting in a kukai is anonymous and publication anywhere voids anonyminity. Any haiku found to be previously published will be disqualified.
We look forward to your participation.
The Sketchbook editors,
Karina Klesko and John Daleiden
