Season’s greetings, haiku-style
Posted Thursday, November 24, 2011 10:00 AM
For the past two years, the Office of the President has sought submissions of original works of art for the cover of the President’s holiday greeting card.

For the 2011 card, we are asking for submissions of original works of poetry — specifically haiku — from members of the University of Manitoba community to use as the inside message for the greeting card.

This is a wonderful opportunity to be creative, and perhaps try something new. One haiku will be featured in the President’s 2011 card, which is shared with members of the university, community, corporate donors and friends.

All submissions will be reviewed by a panel and assessed for their suitability. In the event that no suitable submissions are received, alternate work will be used.
Please note that reproduction of the poem is for the sole purpose of the President’s greeting card and that no financial gain will be made from the reproduction.


Entries must be your original work and must adhere to the general rules of haiku and the following characteristics:

• A three-line form: five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line and five syllables in the third line;
• A focus on nature; and
• A seasonal focus, appropriate to this time of year.

Email up to three haiku poems by Monday, November 28, 4:30 p.m. to Holly Campbell at: holly_campbell@umanitoba.ca. Please include a title for your poem as well as your name, email address, phone number and a brief biography.
