The Lanesboro Haiku Poetry Contest is part of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, a community development initiative led by Lanesboro Arts Center to integrate arts and culture into the social and physical infrastructure of Lanesboro, MN. With the creation of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, the municipal parking lot in Lanesboro will be transformed into the Poetry Parking Lot, an artful, functional space where “park here” signage is replaced with Haiku poetry. From now until June 25, 2014, we will be seeking submissions for Haiku to be displayed on the signage and throughout other components of the Lanesboro Arts Campus. We aim to hold this contest annually, replacing the poetry each year to create a rotating literary exhibition.
