2019 Haiku Contest Results
Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Dreamers Haiku Contest!
We had over 600 Haiku submitted to this contest. The number and quality of the entries made choosing the winner and honorable mentions very difficult, but we’re so pleased with the results. We hope you are too!
A special thank you to guest judge, Dr. Reinekke Lengelle, Symposium Co-Editor for the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, Assistant Professor at Athabasca University, and of course, Poet and Writer.
