A Call to All Local Poets!
The City of San Antonio World Heritage Office invites all area poets and writers of all levels and ages to compete in this year's Banzai Haiku Battle at our annual VIVA POESÍA: Palabra, Musica y Cultura Event on June 3, 2017 from 6:00pm — 11:00pm.
Take a modern approach to an ancient Japanese poetic form and create a Haiku where participants are urged to focus on identity of self, others, and collective world views. (All subjects suitable for a family-friendly environment are acceptable.)
FORMAT: 3 line, 17-syllable piece, in a 5-7-5 syllable count structure.
Register by May 27 to [email protected]
This event will also feature a haiku open-mic for community members to share their own haikus, pop-up vendors, and live music featuring a performance by Volcán and Femina-X!
Bring out your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy this cultural event at Mission Marquee Plaza!
