In our last webmagazine, we launched a haiku competition with the theme of Spring and encouraged readers to send us their original English haiku following a three line, 5-7-5 syllable format. Thank you to all who applied. The JICC staff enjoyed reading through your entries and we are pleased to announce our top three favourites as voted for by our staff. (Winners will receive a small gift for their efforts - we will contact you via email shortly).
If our sakura haiku competition has whet your appetite, why not get writing for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan (MOFA) Fifth Japan-EU English Haiku Contest? This year the theme is “Wonderful Encounter”. You can find more details about the competition here
. The deadline for entries is 27 June. Good luck!
