Haiku Newton Returns:
Send Us Your Poems

The Haiku Newton project debuted last spring, bringing poems on lawn-style signs to various locations in the Garden City. Passersby were surprised and delighted to encounter the haikus
in parks or along busy sidewalks.

As word spread on social media about the project, people came from around Greater Boston to see the signs for themselves. Others viewed the poems via short online video tours.

Thanks to grants from Newton Community Pride, the Newton Cultural Council, and Mass Cultural Council, which also supported the project last year, project directors Grey Held, Elizabeth Lund, and Greg Fulchino are delighted to announce the submission period for Haiku Newton 2023.


If you’d like to submit haiku on some aspect of time, nature, renewal, or life, use this form or click on the image above. Please encourage friends and family members to share their work as well. Submissions will be accepted until March 22. For more information, go to
