Action Haikus

Logo for Action Haikus
Writing haikus can be a useful writing exercise; it combines the need for a tight structure and much creativity to say something of note within that tight structure. The Action Haiku, which follows the traditional form of three lines of 5-7-5 syllables, raises the stakes for creativity by adding the elements of performance. The Action Haiku must include at least one physical action and one sound effect.
