Hello Sakuo,

Do you think your readers would be interested in learning about Nashville's Hot Tomato Haiku Contest for tomato-related haiku?

It grew out of the Tomato Art Fest ( and attracted hundreds of entries last year. Entry is free and we're giving away some great prizes! You don't have to be from Nashville (or even Tennessee) to enter, though winners should be willing to read their winning haiku at this year's festival (August 8th).

I'd be glad to provide any more info I can. Details and entry at

Thanks for your time!
