Here's how it will work:

1. Everyone who signs up writes ONE haiku (this could be a more traditional haiku, which is about nature, or it could be one of the spin-off versions that is about something else. There's a whole KB article about what technically counts as haiku, but for the purposes of this collection we're using the term haiku broadly for convenience :3)

2. Submit the haiku in this thread along with a short (maybe 3-line) bio about yourself

3. Ideas for what to include in the bio: what you do on the site, what's your favourite thread/ forum topic/ literary centre category/ randomosity game / kind of chicken

Here is an example:
Liminality (any pronouns) is a poeter who often lurks in WriterFeedPads. Her favourite threads include the Worst Poem Thread, the Haiku Train and the Tanka Train. Please yell at her about poetry, pets and weird comedy-parody things, because that's her jam.


Also include pronouns, or anything else you'd like us to know!

4. We will compile all the haiku into a thread, linking to everyone's profiles, like a poetic catalogue of new friends

5. . . and there will be an aesthetic pdf collection in that same thread as well! :3

Need inspo?
More on what May Haiku is about
Here's the famous ever-growing Haiku Train on YWS, where you can find examples written by fellow YWS-ers.
Here's a nice little overview on writing haiku.
    Here for the in-betweens and the left-behinds, the unconsidered,
    the out-of-this-world.

  • Pronouns? Any, to be honest!
  • I spend a sizeable chunk of my time in Poem a Week and the Worst Poem thread.
  • You can also come yell at me in WFPs.

Time for more

The first day of May,
my brain is fried from NaPo.
But haikus? Of course!
Someone's missing from your group, someone very important ... Where's Momo?

Spoiler! :
Niv(she/her) is a poet and storywriter, who tries to write a lot of stuff and fails miserably. She is fairly new to YWS, but is head-over-heels in love with the sight. She can be found in WFPs, doing homework and writing (or trying to at least). Feel free to PM her about anything, especially if you get info regarding Atlantis being inside the Bermuda Triangle. <3

IcyFlame says...



Spoiler! :
IcyFlame (she/her) is primarily a novel writer who occasionally starts a poem and then quickly stops again when she remembers that she is no good at it. You'll often find her hanging out in pads, procrastinating from her work or writing. Come and chat to her about characters with tragic backstories, melancholy endings and everything in-between.

blueca says...



Spoiler! :
blueca's (he/him) poetry is easy to spot because of his refusal to capitalize any of it. He loves writing short yet thought-provoking poems and reviewing the works of his peers. blueca is rather new to YWS, but loves the strong sense of community it provides.

whatchamacallit says...



Spoiler! :
whatcha (she/her) is obsessed with everything music and poetry related and is always willing to dive into a conversation with you about those things. You can find her chilling in any poetry-areas of the site, especially clubs like Poetry Readers and Poem A Week! Other important things of note: she is a very indecisive human bean, confuzzlement is her natural state of existence, chickens are baby dinosaurs, and potatoes are delicious.
