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previously unpublished; they must not be work shopped; they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 anonymity. Any haiku found to be previously
published will be disqualified.
A kukai is a
peered review poetry contest. A haiku Topic is assigned by
the editor. An anonymous list of submitted haiku is then
distributed to all participating poets and they are invited
to vote. Votes are returned to the editor who tallies the
votes and publishes the haiku for the participants, this
time with names and points revealed.
