During the month of April, we will be sharing Healthy Haikus created by YOU! In honor of National Poetry Month, NNLM SEA is hosting a Healthy Haiku contest for our members. All participants will be entered into a lottery to receive free registration to the ALA Annual 2021 or MLA ‘21 virtual conference*!
Use this creative outlet for your pandemic angst, healthy-living tips, ailment woes, or anything at all that is health related. Make it light or make it heavy, funny or serious, but make it!
Write a three-line poem, following the syllable pattern 5-7-5. No need to rhyme, just go with the flow!
We ask you to write
On health, pets, COVID-19
Please share your haiku!
Need inspiration for topics? Check out the April National Health Observances, including:
Don’t want to use your own social media account? E-mail your healthy haiku to Liz Waltman (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will share it on our social media accounts and credit you with your submission.
Have fun and we look forward to reading all the amazing haikus!
