This year’s haiku prompt: What is something you want to reset in your life?

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

This year's theme: What's something you want to reset in your life?

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 in Arizona and the region.

We’ll randomly choose one poet on Feb. 24, 2023, who will receive a KJZZ prize pack! (The winner must be available via phone and will be contacted on Feb. 25, 2023, at noon 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 respectively).
  • Only submissions made through this form will be eligible to enter the random drawing.
  • Submission period ends Feb. 24, 2023, at 12 p.m. Arizona time.

Entries are closed for this year. Thank you for your interest!
