HAIKUsutradhar. weekly prompts

A FRIDAY FEATURE

8th September

Host: Kala Ramesh

Group Mentor: Lev Hart Prompter for August: Rupa Anand

OUR MISSION: 1) To provide a new poetry workshop each Friday, along with a prompt.

2) To select haiku, senryu, and haiga each month for the journal, haikuKATHA. Each issue will select poems that were posted in this forum from the 3rd of the previous month to the 2nd of the current month.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

A Quick Note: Starting with our October issue (issue 24), haikuKATHA will only consider haiga and tanka-art submissions that showcase your original artwork or photos. No more using stuff from free sites or AI-generated images, because we want you to boost your creativity!


But don't worry, we're all about collaboration. Because we know not everyone can draw or take great pictures. If you team up with an artist or photographer and we accept your work for publication, both of you will get credit for the masterpiece you've created. Make sure it’s their original work as well and they are not restricted by other publications to share them.


Just remember, it's on you to get permission from the artist/photographer before posting their stuff. We won't be responsible for any copyright issues. So, please keep these changes in mind. Have fun!

1. Post a maximum of two verses per week, from Friday to Friday, numbered 1 & 2. Post only one haiku in a day, in 24 hours.

2. Only post unpublished verses --- nothing that has appeared in peer-reviewed or edited journals, anthologies, your webpage, social media, etc.

3. Only post original verses.

4. For each poem you post, comment on one other person’s poem.

5. Give feedback only to those poets who have requested it.

6. Do not post a variety of drafts, along with a request for readers to choose which they like most. Only one poem is to appear in each original post.

7. Post each revision, if you have any, above the original. The top version will be your submission to haikuKATHA. Do not delete the original post.

8. Do not submit found poetry or split sequences.

9. Do not post photos, except for haiga.


Poems that do not follow the guidelines may be deleted.

2nd Week:

Disasters have destroyed cities and wiped out communities around the world. Natural disasters like hurricanes, typhoons, floods, and earthquakes, these events have collectively taken millions of human lives. There have been many man-made disasters as well ~ like the Chernobyl disaster, the Exxon oil spill, Bhopal gas tragedy ~ to name a few.

If this doesn't pass for original art, I'll delete it.

Anyone can make a sticker by cutting figures from a picture, not necessarily ours, using a cutting tool and share them.
