This year’s Creative Writing competition is a Haiku Challenge!
“Haikus relate to what’s happening right now. They ask us to observe the world around us, and to distil it into a tiny, miniature poem. The most important thing to remember is that haiku are poems grounded in time and place. They are like a snapshot — think of it almost like a photo on Instagram or BeReal.”
Younger students (Juniors) will write haiku, and the older students (Seniors) can choose between Haiku and Haibun.
Submissions are now open – but only until 21 March 2024!Find out more
