    The Robert Spiess Memorial
    2014 Haiku Awards

    As a memorial to Editor Bob Spiess, who died on March 13,2002, Modern Haiku is pleased to announce the Robert Spiess Memorial Haiku Award Competition for 2013. The purpose of this competition is to honor the life and work of Bob Spiess, editor of Modern Haiku from 1978 to his death on March 13,2002.

    Theme: Haiku are to be written in the spirit of the following Speculation (Robert Spiess, A Year’s Speculations on Haiku, Modern Haiku Press,1995) :

    After the awareness of a haiku moment, the poet must select and arrange the words of the haiku in such a manner that when the haiku is read or heard, the words arouse or evoke in the reader/ hearer those immediate feelings that the poet had. The art of haiku is that of the haiku poet’s feel for words, the selection of the absolutely appropriate words and the exact positioning of them.

    Deadline: In hand no later than March 13,2014.
