February is National Haiku Writing Month, known as NaHaiWriMo — and KJZZ wants your original haiku!

This year's theme: What's in store for 2024?

Submit your haiku by using the form below.

Your haiku may be read on air, used online, on social media and/or featured on "Word," KJZZ's podcast about literature.

We’ll randomly choose one poet on Feb. 23, 2024, who will receive a KJZZ prize pack! (The winner must be available via phone and will be contacted at noon Arizona time on Feb. 24, 2024, to read their winning haiku.)

The rules:

  • Only one entry per person, per week.
  • Submissions must be 17 syllables and three lines (usually five, seven and five syllables respectively).
  • Only submissions made through this form will be eligible to enter the random drawing.
  • Submission period ends at noon Arizona time on Feb. 23, 2024. 

The 2024 contest has ended. Thank you for your participation. Listen to the Word podcast to hear the winning entry.
