    I suggest we do a haibun challenge.

    Definition of Haibun

    Haibun (俳文 ?, literally, haikai writings) is a prosimetric literary form originating in Japan, combining prose and haiku. The range of haibun is broad and frequently includes autobiography, diary, essay, prose poem, short story and travel journal.

    I know a lot of people in multiple poetry/haiku groups who we could ping. This could help get us some members. Worst case – they join for a single challenge. Best case, they stay and keep playing. 🙂

    Challenge: Haibun Challenge
    Write a 500-word haibun using the following parameters:

    • Genre: Any
    • Theme: Travel
    • Max Word Count: 500
    • Setting: Any
    • Time Period: Any
    • Required Phrase: ?? not sure yet
    • Special Requirement: Must have at least 1 haiku in the story.



    I would love a haibun challenge. I’ve been meaning to gather all of my old ones for a collection. I promise to write something new for this one, though.

    Sounds great. That’s one vote in favor of!

    I’m going to hod off on this one a week as the holiday week slowed everyone down.
