Event Navigation

 

Take a Haiku Hike this spring in Downtown Tucson! 20 Haiku were chosen by Tucson’s Poet Laureate to be displayed in planters along Congress and Stone. The “Hike” is approximately a half mile and 1,000 steps. Poems will be displayed every day from dawn to dusk until June 1.

The Downtown Tucson Partnership together with the University of Arizona Poetry Center were proud to announce the 1st annual Old Pueblo Poems literary competition. 20 winning haiku poems were chosen out of 987 haiku entries in the inaugural competition! This year’s theme is “Life in the City.” Haiku entries will be judged by Tucson’s Poet Laureate, TC Tolbert. Out of the 977 total haiku entries, 825 came from Tucson and the remaining hail from 12 different states and five countries.
