We will be having a kukai during our conference. A kukai is a type of haiku contest. Haiku are written anonymously, then are voted upon by participants or judges. The kukai will allow poems written anytime at the conference, but you may feel yourself inspired if you attend our ginkos to Olympic Sculpture Park or our trip downtown on Thursday. There will a box for entering up to two poems in the bookfair room. Participants will be reminded to enter their poems during many group announcements, but the Friday night program will begin with a final call for submissions. The winners will be announced at lunch on Saturday.
