Haiku Duel - The World's Best Poetry Tournament
Haiku Duel is a NCAA bracket style haiku tournament that turns into a dance party between rounds. Sixteen poets face off one on one until a champion emerges. Prior to each round, the audience shouts out topics. Applause decides the winner for an ultimate grand prize of $500.
We designed this event to make poetry more accessible. After finding that poetry can often feel pedantic, we wondered if there was a way to sneak mini poetry readings into a party setting. The ultimate goal is to provide a platform for people to love poetry if they don't or fall deeper if they already do.
