Frontier Fam Creatives: Writing a Haiku

Frontier Fam Creatives: Writing a Haiku

Haiku creation

Help us write a little book

Let’s get creative

Remember the Frontier Community Coloring Book we made a few weeks back? Well, to build on this project, we now need your help in developing a poetry book made up of community haiku! Don’t worry, we will teach you what a haiku is and how to write one. This simple form of poetry can even be meditative!

We will start by giving you some different themes and then we will turn you loose to get creative! lWe welcome you to write as many as you would like and, if you are feeling really connected, to illustrate a picture to accompany them.

Submit your haiku to by Friday, July 17, and we will put them all together in a mini Frontier RTP poetry book.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Pen/pencil
  • Colored pencils/crayons (if you would like to draw around your poem)
  • Scanner or scanner app (we recommend Simple Scanner or Simple Scan)
