Hurricane Haiku Ballot Box
Haiku ready? Come!
Cast your votes and have some fun
while we still have sun
It’s time to vote for your favorite Hurricane Haikus! Vote below by awarding stars to the five finalists. The three haikus with the most stars win prizes (Visa gift cards: First place $125; Second $75; Third $50) and get published in the upcoming Florida Book Awards issue of FORUM, our statewide magazine. Voting ends on July 17 at midnight EST. We’ll announce the winners in our July 21 ENews. (You’ll have an opportunity to sign up for FORUM and ENews after you click “Submit Vote” below.)
These five finalists were chosen from more than 350 entries in our Hurricane Haiku contest. We loved reading them! Each one is a nugget of personal experience and perception—witty, wise and, yes, woeful. Together, they create a sense of community about this unpredictable season we go through every year. We’ll share a wider sampling of haiku entries after the contest ends.
