Haiku for Hire

Calling all poets!

A local communications and design firm, Vox Auxilio, is in need of themed haiku for a client project. Specifically, they need a collection of haikus that are suitable for occasions like a wedding engagement or new job or some general accomplishment. The common thread is that they must convey a sense of congratulations; however, infusing the haikus with a sense of humor or edginess is strongly encouraged.

A list of sample topics is included below.

Engagement, Marriage or Anniversary
New baby
New home
Graduation
New job
Promotion at work
Retirement
Birthday
General Accomplishment (lose weight, sports victory, successful project, academic achievement)
New Relationship (girlfriend, boyfriend, new puppy)

This project can afford to pay $17 dollars for each accepted haiku (a dollar per syllable). Submitted poetry must be unpublished previously. This means it has not been published in print or on the Internet. Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2015.

For more information or to submit a haiku, please contact Mike Durand at 206.331.2023 or mike@voxauxilio.com.
