I’d like to do a transit haiku contest for I Love Transit Week!
I’ve managed to get space for two haiku on our TV advertising screens during I Love Transit Week, July 12-16: so write and send your haiku about transit to firstname.lastname@example.org  by the end of Sunday, July 4, and I’ll pick two winners to be displayed! The rest will be published on the blog and in the August Buzzer for all to enjoy.
If you don’t know, haiku  is a form of Japanese poetry that’s three lines long. Here’s 10 tips for writing haiku —you might be surprised to learn that 5-7-5 syllable structure isn’t a given, although I certainly don’t mind you entering such haiku in the contest.
- One entry per person!!!!
- Include how you want your name to show up on the screen
- This draw is only open to those in Metro Vancouver
Remember: submit your transit essays, photos, button suggestions and more
I’m still looking for your transit essays, photos and more to be published during I Love Transit Week, for both the blog and the print Buzzer. Also, submit suggestions for new button designs by Thursday June 24!
See these posts for more info:
- A call for submissions: I Love Transit Week, July 12-16 
- I Love Transit Week 2010: let’s make some new transit buttons! 
And make plans to come to I Love Transit Night on the evening of July 15: there’ll be free food, transit games, buttons, and more! We’re still ironing out the details, but here’s more about last year’s I Love Transit Night , for reference.
