Echidna Tracks Submissions

A reminder that submissions for Echidna Tracks issue 4: Recreation & Leisure remain open throughout the month of October.

From the beach to the bush, from playing fields to ski slopes, from public parks to domestic spaces, Australia offers a wealth of opportunities and places to enjoy our leisure time.

We invite your previously unpublished haiku and senryu about recreation, relaxation, holidays, sport, hobbies and pastimes. The editors look forward to your contributions.

2019 AFL Grand Final Haiku Kukai

Calling haiku poets (and non-haiku poets alike) all over the world to sharpen your haiku lenses for the 2019 AFL Grand Final Haiku Kukai. This is the 8th annual running of this event in which haiku poets from all corners of the globe spend the duration of the AFL Grand Final writing haiku about the game. Your efforts will produce the only ‘live call’ of a major sports event in haiku anywhere in the world! (that we’re aware of!) So, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, whoever you barrack for, send us some haiku of your experience of watching the game. Whether it be from inside the stadium, your couch, the local pub, the car, or even your bed, send us haiku throughout the game. This is a most unique grand final experience. Game starts 2.30pm (AEST) Saturday 29th September, but you are welcome to send haiku throughout the week in the build up to the game.

See you at the game!
