Minneapolis, Minn., April 1, 2009 — April is National Poetry Month and Haiku By Two has planned a slew of activities in celebration.
Every Monday morning throughout the month of April, Haiku By Two will post an open submission topic and invite readers to share their own haiku on the subject.
Early risers can check the web site (www.HaikuByTwo.com) on Monday, April 6, 13, 20 and 27 at 6 a.m. EST to learn the haiku topic for the week. Submissions will be accepted throughout the month and posted as reader comments.

Stephanie Watson, author of the middle-grade novel, Elvis and Olive, will kick off the month as a guest haiku’er with five petite poems dedicated to her dog, Nino.
The second guest haiku’er, Jen, will share five haiku in which she grapples with the concept of what it means to accept someone as a Facebook friend.
The third guest haiku’er, Sarah R. Bloom, is a professional photographer who will share a series of photos with accompanying haiku.
In addition, Haiku By Two will post two new reviews of haiku books throughout the month, as well as interviews with their authors.
