    July 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

    Join us for the longest-running poetry showcase in South Carolina, celebrating 19 years of exciting poetry programming since 2002.

    Sunday, July 31, 2022 Haiku Death Match!!! Host Black Phoenix. Poets bring your haikus to compete in our annual Haiku Death Match (National Style). Poets should have at least 40 haiku to compete. Winner will receive $200. Brief open mic sign up by 7:15pm

    Haiku is a formal Japanese form of poetry that typically dealt with seasons or transitions. Everyone who has been exposed to poetry has learned at one point or another what is a haiku in its basic westernized format. Simply put, it is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables. How the HAIKUSTERS choose to manipulate those syllables, or three lines, depends upon their own flavor. Poets in this Haiku death match go head to head with their best haikus. Who will be the next Haiku master!!!

    Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
