Heights Arts and Cain Park presents the Haiku Death Match on Saturday, August 3, 2019, hosted by Dan Moulthrop of the Cleveland City Club. Now an annual event, the Haiku Death match pits the region’s best and bravest writers of the meditative, 17-syllable form against each other in a contest for the title of Haiku Death Match Master. It’s poetry, theatre, talent show, and a jousting match rolled into one. The audience votes for the poems they like best, contestants are eliminated, and the last poet standing is the winner! This year, contestants will display their skill with classical, nature-oriented Haiku and with Haiku on contemporary subjects, such as politics, pets, and all things Cleveland.
