Seeing as how Occupational Therapy Month and Poetry Month are both celebrated in April, Brenau’s School of Occupational Therapy and English program are teaming up for a unique wordsmithery contest this month. As part of the second “Occupation Haiku” festivities on campus, Brenau staff, faculty and students are invited to send in their best three-line poem capturing and illustrating the significance of “a moment of human occupation and/or daily life.”
Each entry will be judged by a three-person panel consisting of Kathryn Locey, Sandy Brim and internationally renowned occupational therapy and science scholar Betty Hasselkus. There is a $50 first prize, $30 second prize and $20 third prize for student entrants, while staff and faculty will receive honorable mentions for their poems.
Please send your haikus in a single email (not as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line Occupation Haiku Contest. Participants may send in up to three haikus for the contest.
The deadline is April 14 at 11:59 p.m. There will be a reading of the winning entries in the Library Quiet Zone at 5:30 p.m. on April 26.
