  • Japanese Woodblock Challenge - an opportunity!

    Alan Summers is accepting haiku (published or unpublished) that align with Japanese art (woodblock prints) displayed at the Bristol Museum!

    "There is also an opportunity to submit haiku, senryu or tanka poetry online, based on (or matched to) Bristol Museum & Art Gallery's prints, from wherever in the world you are logging on. We are looking for poems to use as examples during the event, and some may also be selected for possible publication on the museum's website "


    Here is the link to learn more about the event:
    https://www.callofthepage.org/events...ristol-museum/


    Here are 3 links to view the Japanese woodblock prints:

    Masters of Japanese prints: Hokusai and Hiroshige landscapes
    https://exhibitions.bristolmuseums.o...ge-landscapes/


    Masters of Japanese prints: Life in the city
    https://exhibitions.bristolmuseums.o...e-in-the-city/

    Masters of Japanese prints: Nature and seasons
    https://exhibitions.bristolmuseums.o...e-and-seasons/


    And here is the link to submit haiku! (Alan notes to include the Japanese Print title and/or ID number for each woodblock print you write haiku about. The Print ID numbers are at the bottom of each piece and look like this: Mb7788)

    There are many Japanese woodblock prints that are quite enjoyable to view online. I also found it was quite fun to write haiku about them!

    Hope you enjoy!
