Please join us for our Annual MO Poetry Haiku Slam Championship.
Discover the sound of one hand clapping and enter the mystery of one hand laughing.
Head to Head Haiku is a raucous mixture of traditional Japanese and contemporary American. A Head to Head Poetry showdown, many will enter, one will leave victorious, carrying prizes and surrounded by the deafening sound of one hand clapping.
This event occurs just once each year, so do not miss it.
Come see who will be our 2013 Haiku Champion!
