This contest comes from literary agent Rachelle Gardner. It’s very simple. Write a haiku (you know–the standard 5-7-5 syllable pattern) about the writing life or the holidays.
The deadline is Saturday, the 20th, 11:59 p.m.; finalists should be up on Monday for readers/voters.
I submitted mine, the horrible poet that I am 😛 I wrote this in ten minutes, as is probably obvious but it’s lack of poetic quality. Anyway, I decided to try in the limited amount of syllables to convey my passion for writing historical fiction, but that’s probably not that easy to see, lol. But hey I decided to try–who can turn down the oppportunity to have the first ten pages of a manuscript critiqued or a $20 Amazon gift card?
Characters find me
Voices from the distant past
Begging to be heard.
Go ahead and give it a try–it can’t hurt!
