Inspired by Japanese prints

In autumn 2019, poets from around the world responded to a call for haiku based on Japanese prints in the collection at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. Over 800 submissions were received from poets in thirty countries. You can view the entire selection here.

Many poems were inspired by woodblock prints in the museum’s 2018-2019 exhibition series, Master of Japanese Prints.

The project was arranged by haiku poets Alan Summers and Karen Hoy of creative writing consultancy Call of the Page. The call for poems was linked with a haiku workshop delivered at the museum with writer and producer Bertel Martin of City Chameleon.

I had this one accepted, featuring a puppeteer (quite a sad looking one, I thought)
