Hi Sakuo,

Do you think your readers would be interested in learning about Nashville's 3rd annual Hot Tomato Haiku Contest?
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 14th).
I'd be glad to provide any more info I can. Details and entry at

Eileen and the Team
