summer morning—
a spider weaves her web
of entrapment

To: kukaieditor@poetrywriting.org
Subject:June08 summer morn(ing) Kukai

Submissions: Sunday, June 01, 2008 – Friday, June 20, 2008 Midnight.
Voting: Saturday June 21, 2008 – Friday, June 27, 2008, Midnight.

The results will be published in the Monday, June 30, 2008 Sketchbook
Recent letters to the Sketchbook editors and discussions on various forums indicate that some assumptions about a kukai must be spelled out. From now on (April 1, 2008), Haiku entered in the Sketchbook kukai must be previously unpublished; they must not be workshopped; they must not appear on any list, forum, group, blog, or in print. In short, if the haiku has appeared on the internet or in print we consider it to have been published. The voting in a kukai is anonymous and publication anywhere voids anonyminity. Any haiku found to be previously published will be disqualified.
