2013 Austin Haiku Championship & Fundraiser
Tonight a new Austin Head-to-Head haiku champion will be crowned; what's more, all the proceeds will go to benefit the 2013 Neo Soul Nationals team and help them out as they represent Austin at Poetry Slam Nationals later this summer.
We've got some of the best haiku poets in the country in the area, and in addition to the Austinites, College Station, San Antonio and Houston are already represented on the sign-up list.
It's an open list to sign up - if you want to compete please post on the facebook event page or email Jacob Dodson.
We define a haiku as a short poem consisting of 17 or less syllables - no titles and no repeats during the competition. The competition will consist of 16 poets in two rounds of best of 3, one best of five and a final best of seven. Event format will be modified if there's more than 16 poets - we won't turn competitors away.
Cover is $5 at the door, $3 in advance. Doors at 7:15, show will begin at 8:00
The event is hosted by Jacob Dodson, the 2012 Head-to-Head Haiku Austin champion and national champion.
