Get creative with the written word and participate in Haiku from Home, a new project developed by local poet and educator, Gianna Russo, and launched by our Division of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
 
Write a haiku about a distinct moment during these days of the pandemic. Haiku is a small, three-lined poem whose lines are based on syllable counts of 5/7/5/:  five syllables for the first line, seven for the second line, and ending with five syllables for the third line.
 
You may submit anonymously, or you can include your name and social media information.  Your words may be selected to be featured on the City of Tampa social media pages, or even be read publicly by our Mayor, Jane Castor!
 
For more information on the project and how to submit, visit www.tampagov.net/arts  Deadline to submit is Friday, May 22, 2020.
