Rojonekku Hand-to-Hand Haiku Tournament

2:Rojonekku Hand-to-Hand Haiku Tournament is a single-elimination haiku poetry battle done in round formats where any and all competitors are allowed to flex their individual poetic style. It takes only about 20 haiku to compete, though you may not use any more than three (if eliminated early). The goal is to bring together different poetic flavors to cross-pollinate each other, and enjoy ourselves. Additionally, host Raven Mack takes on a willing combatant in a Haiku Death Match (Best-of-25 rounds), and other entertaining nonsense happens as the night allows. For more info, see www.rojonekku.com
