HAIKUsutradhar: weekly prompts
… thread your moments into poems!

Sutradhar, a compound word in Samskrit, is derived from two root words: sutra (सूत्र) meaning a string
or thread, and dhar (धार) meaning a wielder. Thus, a sutradhar means a facilitator, a host, a narrator or
a storyteller.

Each guest editor will give prompts every week for the period of one month.

Only unpublished poems posted for the prompts will be considered for haikuKATHA, the monthly journal.

Our hosts: Madhuri Pillai and Vidya Venkatramani have stepped down for personal reasons.
THI wishes them the very best.
