February is National Haiku Writing Month — and KJZZ wants to read your original haiku!

This year's theme: What brings you hope or joy?

Submit your haiku by using the form below.

Your haiku may be read on air and/or featured on "Word," KJZZ's podcast about literature in Arizona and the region, hosted by Tom Maxedon.

We’ll randomly choose one poet on Feb. 25, 2022, who will receive a KJZZ prize pack! (The winner must be available via phone and will be contacted on Feb. 25, 2022, to read their winning haiku.)

The rules:

  • Only one entry per person, per week.
  • Haiku must be 17 syllables and three lines (usually five, seven and five syllables).
  • Only submissions made through this form will be eligible to enter the random drawing.
  • Submission period ends Feb. 25, 2022, at 12 p.m. Arizona time.
