Haiku syllable counter

Please submit your original haiku or limerick by March 31, 2018.

You can submit works under your own name or anonymously.

Works should be appropriate for a college audience. Each submission will be reviewed for appropriateness and poems that include vulgarity or profanity, or that are political in nature, will not be printed.

You are welcome to submit multiple entries. However, depending on the submission volume, we may not publish all poems submitted by the same individual.

If you have any questions regarding the program please contact Joel Tonyan (jtonyan@uccs.edu)

These special coffee cup sleeves will be available during the month of April.
