Call For Haiku

The Open Space Visitor Center in Albuquerque seeks New Mexico poets to submit “haiku, haiku-like poems, and short one or two line poems” to be presented at their yearly Poets’ Picnic at the Visitor Center in May. Poems must center on the following themes: nature, the seasons, the Rio Grande’s open spaces, plants, animals, ecology, the bosque or environment. You’re invited to send up to 10 original poems, provided they’ve never been published anywhere else. Send your poems to, with the following words in your subject line: “Poets’ Picnic Haiku” by Feb. 11. If your poem is picked, it will be written on a weathergram by professional calligraphers and left to hang in the bosque for a year.
