Welcome to The Deliberate Agrarian Haiku Poetry Contest for 2010. The contest begins on July 1 and ends on November 25.

This is an opportunity for you to express your creativity and your love of all things agrarian in simple, 17-syllable poems. Your submissions will be published here for all the world to see and enjoy. Better yet, you will be eligible to win some surprisingly nice, down-to-earth prizes.

Entering the contest is as simple as e-mailing your haiku poem. But there are some rules and guidelines that you need to know.

Poem submissions will be posted to this web site as they are received and can be seen by clicking on the age category links on the right side of this page.
