Call for Submissions: Election 2020 Haiku


Call for Submissions: Hedgehogs and Foxes
Election Haiku Contest

Hedgehogs and Foxes (HaF) welcomes Haiku submissions from poets and from those who dabble,
especially writers from the legal academy. As you know, a Haiku is a type of short form poetry that consists of three phrases. Generally, the first line contains five syllables, the second seven, and the final five. However, we welcome submissions that stray from the traditional format.

For example:

Consider me
As one who loved poetry
And persimmons.

By Masaoaka Shiki

The theme for this contest: Election 2020

Entries may be serious, emotional, spooky, snarky, or funny. We’re all on the 2020 roller coaster, and anything could happen! What’s on your mind, and how might you express it in seventeen syllables?

HaF will publish the top-five Haiku submissions, as voted on by our Editorial Board. All
submissions will receive grand applause from the Editorial Board, including the little hand claps in Zoom, and the winning submission will surely receive tremendous adulation from legal scholars, at least until the next election cycle.

Please email your Haiku submissions to Editorial Board Member Joshua Aaron Jones at Submissions should be emailed no later than midnight on October 15. We hope to
publish by Sunday, November 1. The email subject line should read “HaF Haiku Submission – Your
Name.” Please upload your Haiku in Word format and without your identifying information, as we will judge the Haikus anonymously. For all questions about the contest, please email Joshua.
