DEADLINE: Summer Haiku Series 2023

August 31, 2023

Our popular summer haiku series is returning for August 2023 – Submit your snaps + an accompanying haiku to be featured on WritersNL’s social media platforms! 🌳 🌺 🌲 🌞 🌸

Like we did in summer 2021 and 2022, we’ll be updating WritersNL’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook until Labour Day Weekend 2023, bringing our annual boost of colour to your newsfeed by featuring photos and poems from WritersNL Members!

This fun little social media campaign as a way to connect with, engage with, and celebrate the creative genius of WritersNL Members, and wow, we are always consistently impressed with the submissions we receive!
To be featured, please submit your hi-resolution photo and accompanying haiku to WritersNL staff at

Remember, haikus are short-form poetry, presented in three lines, using a 5, 7, 5 pattern – that’s syllables, of course! We’ll pair your poem with your artwork, and credit you. (Note: anonymous submissions are also accepted.)

Please note: This is not an official WritersNL contest, therefore entrants will not receive payment or other prizes for participating. WritersNL’s Summer Haiku Campaign is intended to connect writers via social media by using simple, short-form poetry that is accessible to creators of all ages, levels, and backgrounds, while simultaneously showcasing the beauty of our short but glorious Summer season. WritersNL thanks you for your interest.
