Translink Life’s Better Haiku Competition

Do you reside in Northern Ireland and write Haiku? How about the prospect of having your work displayed in public bus and railway stations across NI? Translink and Poetry NI are currently running a Haiku competition to find suitably themed poems. See here  or  here

The deadline is 31st July 2014, and four poems are to be chosen for display.  The competition is only open to those who reside in Northern Ireland, and entries are to be submitted online. Four winning haiku will be chosen that best reflect how travelling by bus and train can make your life better. The judges are from the organisations Translink, Poetry NI and Community Arts Partnership, and there is no entry fee.

Poetry NI is an organisation supporting and showcasing poetry around Northern Ireland, see the website here  Its main projects include a quarterly online poetry journal called FourXFour, a monthly open mic session called Purely Poetry (Cresent Art Centre, Belfast), and Pen Points Press  a small independent publishing wing. It's an organisation doing good work for poetry - well done!
