About Hot Cross Haiku

Hot Cross Haiku serves a mixed platter of contemporary and traditional haiku by Ian Row and other authors – haiku that’s playful, incisive, whimsical, pertinent and always tasty.

Hot Cross Haiku has been going since 2006. We’ve just marked our 10th birthday on 4 July 2016 and our migration to WordPress in October 2016 picks up where we left off.

So yes, if you want to have a little peek or a major trawl through 120 months worth of archival haiku visit the previous blog.

If you’d like to get more out of Hot Cross Haiku you can submit one right here.

Or you can hang out for a Spot Haiku (just like a haiku challenge) or the Speed Round (when you have 5 mins to mark your mark).

To be kept in the loop, you’ll want to join the Facebook group and/or add @hotcrosshaiku to follow us on Twitter. Or you can put yourself on the mailing list and we’ll let you know when they’re happening. Blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds vary.
